Bill Gates aims to work more closely with Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon, to combat the climate crisis. The Microsoft Co-Founder said it could dwarf the current pandemic in fatalities as well as global impact.
That’s where working with Jeff Bezos comes in as he has pledged more to combat climate change than Gates, and he is hoping they can collaborate to back costly early-stage green alternatives to current technologies.
“The deaths will just go up over time as you get more heatwaves, forest fires and, most importantly, lose the ability to go outdoors and do farming anywhere near the equator,” Gates said in an interview with Bloomberg Television’s Emily Chang. His book, “How to Avoid a Climate Disaster,” went on sale earlier this month.
