Ep35 – Does Bill Gates’ Prescription for Avoiding a Climate Disaster Give Too Much Power to the Government?
In this episode of Mentally Unscripted, Paul and Scott review How to Avoid a Climate Disaster: The Solutions We Have and the Breakthroughs We Need, by Bill Gates.
Gates assumes that climate change is real and that we can do something about it.
We must get to net 0 carbon emissions by 2050. Gates' position is that avoiding a climate disaster will come through innovation, not from reducing our demand for energy. We must develop greener technologies to accommodate our energy demand.
Neither Paul nor Scott will give up eating meat.
