    …[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
