Bill Gates: Rich nations should shift entirely to synthetic beef

In his new book, How to Avoid a Climate Disaster, Bill Gates lays out what it will really take to eliminate the greenhouse-gas emissions driving climate change.

 

The Microsoft cofounder, who is now cochair of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and chair of the investment fund Breakthrough Energy Ventures, sticks to his past argument that we抣l need numerous energy breakthroughs to have any hope of cleaning up all parts of the economy and the poorest parts of the world. The bulk of the book surveys the technologies needed to slash emissions in 揾ard to solve?sectors like steel, cement, and agriculture.

 

He stresses that innovation will make it cheaper and more politically feasible for every nation to cut or prevent emissions. But Gates also answers some of the criticisms that his climate prescriptions have been overly focused on 揺nergy miracles?at the expensive of aggressive government policies.

 

The closing chapters of the book lay out long lists of ways that nations could accelerate the shift, including high carbon prices, clean electricity standards, clean fuel standards, and far more funding for research and development. Gates calls for governments to quintuple their annual investments in clean tech, which would add up to $35 billion in the US.

 

Gates describes himself as an optimist, but it抯 a constrained type of optimism. He dedicates an entire chapter to describing just how hard a problem climate change is to address. And while he consistently says we can develop the necessary technology and we can avoid a disaster; it抯 less clear how hopeful he is that we will.

 

I spoke to Gates in December about his new book, the limits of his optimism, and how his thinking on climate change has evolved.

 

Gates is an investor either personally or through Breakthrough Energy Ventures in several of the companies he mentions below, including Beyond Meats, Carbon Engineering, Impossible Foods, Memphis Meats, and Pivot Bio. This interview has been edited for space and clarity?/i>

 

Q: In the book you cover a broad array of hard-to-solve sectors. The one I still have the hardest time with, in terms of fully addressing it, is food. The scale is massive. We抳e barely begun. We fundamentally don抰 have replacements that completely eliminate the highly potent emissions from burping livestock and fertilizer. How hopeful are you about agriculture? ...

 

Q: Do you think plant-based and lab-grown meats could be the full solution to the protein problem globally, even in poor nations? Or do you think it抯 going to be some fraction because of the things you抮e talking about, the cultural love of a hamburger and the way livestock is so central to economies around the world? ...

 

Q: You talk a lot in the book about the importance of carbon-removal technologies, like direct air capture. You also did come out and say that planting trees as a climate solution is overblown. What抯 your reaction to things like the Trillion Trees Initiative and the large number of corporations announcing plans to achieve negative emissions at least in part through reforestation and offsets? ...

 

Q: I do have to ask this: Microsoft is in the process of trying to eliminate its entire historic emissions, and there was a Bloomberg article that had a figure in there that I was a little surprised by. The company apparently wants to do it at $20 a ton? Do you think we can achieve reliable permanent carbon removal for $20 a ton eventually? ...

Bill Gates: How the world can avoid a climate disaster

"Without innovation, we will not solve climate change. We won't even come close," Gates says. Anderson Cooper reports for 60 Minutes.

2021 Feb 15

 

Bill Gates helped usher in the digital revolution at Microsoft, and has spent the decades since exploring - and investing in - innovative solutions to some of the world's toughest problems - global poverty, disease, and the coronavirus pandemic, which he's spent nearly $2 billion on.

 

Now he is focusing on climate change, agreeing with the overwhelming majority of scientists who warn of a looming climate disaster. The good news is Gates believes it's possible to prevent a catastrophic rise in temperatures. The bad news? He says in the next 30 years we need scientific breakthroughs, technological innovations and global cooperation on a scale the world has never seen.

 

Anderson Cooper: You believe this is the toughest challenge humanity has ever faced?

 

Bill Gates: Absolutely. The amount of change, new ideas.? It's way greater than the pandemic. And it needs a level of cooperation that would be unprecedented.

 

Anderson Cooper: That doesn't sound feasible--

 

Bill Gates: No, it's not easy. But hey, we have 30 years--

 

Anderson Cooper: It sounds impossible.

Bill Gates: 慉ll Rich Countries Should Move To 100% Plant-Based Beef?To Fight Climate Crisis

Billionaire Bill Gates says all rich countries should move to 100 percent synthetic, aka plant-based, beef to fight the climate crisis.

 

The tech entrepreneur made the comment in a recent interview with MIT, discussing his new book How to Avoid a Climate Disaster.

 

Plant-based meat brands

 

Gates praised plant-based meat brands Impossible Foods and Beyond Meat for having a 憅uality road map and a cost road map, that makes them totally competitive.?/p>

 

揂s for scale today, they don抰 represent one percent of the meat in the world, but they抮e on their way,?he added.
