    Bill Gates’ 5 Climate Crisis Keys

    Bill Gates: These 5 concepts will help you understand the urgency of the climate crisis

    Catherine Clifford, February 14, 2021 (CNBC)

    “…[In] How to Avoid a Climate Disaster,” billionaire Bill Gates shares five basic concepts that have helped to frame his understanding of the pending climate crisis…51 billion tons of greenhouse gasses are added to the atmosphere each year…[Gates writes that any green technology or policy impact should be] based on what percentage of 51 billion tons of GHG it can remove from the atmosphere…

    Making things, like cement and steel [31% of GHGs], is more of a culprit than…Electricity: 27%...Growing things, including plants and animals: 19%...Transportation, including planes, trucks and cargo ships: 16%...[and] heating, cooling and refrigeration: 7%...It takes 5,000 gigawatts it takes to power the world…[including] Mid-size city: 1 gigawatt…Small town: 1 megawatt…Average American household: 1 kilowatt…

    …[But it] all comes back to money…Green or clean energy solutions, are more expensive than using fossil fuels. Gates calls it the “green premium.” For each energy source, the green premium will be different. (In very rare cases, it can be negative…And since carbon emissions are a global problem, it’s key to consider what is affordable for all countries, not just the wealthy ones, Gates says.” click here for more
