Bill Gates decided to give money to save the planet
Bill Gates promises to help the U.S. government to save the planet and give 1.5 billion dollars to combat climate change, but only if U.S. President Joe Biden signs a bill on infrastructure investment of 1.2 trillion dollars. About this writes Forbes.
The government initiative calls for spending $73 billion on green energy retrofits, with another $21 billion to help companies clean up old industrial and energy facilities.
As part of the Senate's $1.2 trillion infrastructure investment bill, Bill Gates pledged $1.5 billion to help the state fight climate change. But much controversy has developed around the legislative initiative, and Congress is in no hurry to approve it. If the bill does not pass, Gates said he would be extremely disappointed and would divert his funds to other countries.
He also warned that similar projects are gaining momentum in Europe and Asia, which means that the United States could lose leadership in this area. According to Gates, the critical thing for all climate technologies is to reduce the cost of their use and at the same time introduce them everywhere. This cannot be achieved without the right government policies, which is exactly what is proposed in the developed law.
Earlier, Bill Gates was caught not getting rid of all oil assets to save the planet as he promised. 100 million dollars remained invested in shares of major oil and gas companies. At the same time, according to the billionaire, the problem of climate change is more serious than the coronavirus pandemic.
