Gates Goes Green

At this year's TED2010 conference in Long Beach, Calif., Microsoft Founder and Philanthropist Bill Gates took on a new topic: energy and climate change—in part to explain his position amid a surge in requests for his foundation to fund green projects.

In this Feb. 12 talk, released today by TED organizers, Gates unveils his vision for the world's energy future, describing the need for "miracles" to avoid global catastrophe and explaining why he's backing a dramatically different type of nuclear reactor. The goal, he says: zero carbon emissions by 2050.
