Bill Gates says key to beating climate change is energy innovation. Is it? | Humanosphere
Climate change and supporting energy R&D is not, and likely will never be, a big focus for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, he said, because these are likely best solved by the “capitalistic format” and government incentives supporting industrial innovation.

“The foundation looks at things that are ignored, no market for,” Gates said.
Gates made a lot of jokes (and got laughs) when talking about the failure of governments and politicians to address climate change
