Bill Gates on Energy: Innovating to Zero

A few weeks ago our CEO/Founder Jon Bischke was lucky enough to attend the TED2010 Conference (Technology, Entertainment, Design) here in Long Beach, California. He said one of the best speakers was Bill Gates who spoke on innovating our energy policy so we reach zero carbon emissions globally by 2050. You can now watch this talk through streaming video on the TED site.

In this talk Gates provides a simple equation for the increase in carbon dioxide globally and he sees that the only way to reduce carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is to reduce carbon emissions from the equation. He calls for innovation in all alternative methods of creating energy and says it will take a miracle of innovation to come up with a solution. He suggests one possible "miracle" which he is investing in is a new kind of nuclear power which generates power from what we currently designate as nuclear waste. Listen to this clear and concise talk about how one of America's top business & technology leaders is looking at solving the climate crisis.
