Gates and MS Don’t See Eye-To-Eye On CO2

Sam Machkovech writes “Bill Gates’s speech at last week’s TED Conference centered on ‘moving to zero-carbon energy, and our need to reduce CO2 emissions 80% by 2050.’ His choice of subject was an abrupt turn from The Gates Foundation’s typical humanitarian topics, but he insisted that energy innovation is crucial to his Foundation’s goals. A move by Microsoft today proves that Gates’s old company has less interest in that carbon-neutral goal — Microsoft has begun campaigning against a bridge redesign that would result in more bus and transit options for commuters between Seattle and the company’s homebase of Redmond, WA.”
