Energy and what the future holds for Energy is an interesting topic, but one of the last people I would have thought there was a video talking about it would be Bill Gates, but sure enough Mr. MS-DOS (or was that CP-M?) has an opinion about what needs to happen in the area of power and energy going into the future.
Given the mess we are in currently in terms of reliance on non-renewable energy, and our inability to innovate a “better” energy source, this is an interesting talk (I do not agree with it, but it is interesting).
At TED2010, Bill Gates unveils his vision for the world’s energy future, describing the need for “miracles” to avoid planetary catastrophe and explaining why he’s backing a dramatically different type of nuclear reactor. The necessary goal? Zero carbon emissions globally by 2050.
