Billionaire Bill Gates warned in a blog post on Tuesday that climate change will create a “dramatically worse” world for “our grandchildren.”
Gates argued that the solution to climate change can be summed up in two sentences.
“We need to eliminate global emissions of greenhouse gases by 2050. Extreme weather is already causing more suffering, and if we don’t get to net-zero emissions, our grandchildren will grow up in a world that is dramatically worse off,” he wrote.
Gates also wrote that it would be one of the hardest things humans have ever done. One of the world’s richest men, Gates has focused particularly on battling climate change in recent years and said that soon becoming a grandfather had affected his thinking about the future.
