I wonder why he doesn't urge more charitable giving by the rich

He does. He and Bill Gates have personally contacted many other billionaires to encourage them to contribute a significant portion of their estates to charitable causes. Here's an article: http://features.blogs.fortune.cnn.com/2010/06/16/gates-buffe...

rather than higher taxes

It doesn't have to be an either/or situation. It appears to me that he's encouraging both charitable giving AND higher taxes.
