Recently, in an interview with CNBC, gates, who is worth 100 billion US dollars, said he hopes to do his part to reduce the impact of global warming.
Gates said that his life is also changing, and he is trying to change his consumption habits and reduce carbon emissions.
He gave a few examples: driving has now become an electric car, solar panels have been installed at home, and artificial meat has been used in food and drink, though sometimes – Gates is really positive on this point. Several meat companies have invested from the Gates Foundation.
Of course, the artificial meat that foreigners say is synthetic protein, not the “artificial meat” of soybean products in Chinese diet. The latter is much more environmentally friendly.
Ordinary people can drive electric cars, eat artificial meat and install solar energy, but there is something ordinary people can’t do, that is, private airplanes. Gates said that his airplanes have started to use green aviation fuel, and he also paid for carbon capture through Swiss climeworks.
In addition, Gates also mentioned his funding to help low-cost houses switch to electric pumps instead of natural gas, which is also an environmental protection.
In addition to practicing environmental protection, Gates’ most important work actually includes various green environmental protection research projects. He founded the energy fund to study various new energy technologies and help deal with climate change.
Only innovation can provide services to all without emissions, Gates said.
