Bill Gates on Consuming Less

Bill Gates:  "And climate change advocates often advocate using less and consuming less as one potential solution to climate change — degrowth, it’s often called. This idea is quixotic, according to Bill Gates.

“'I don’t think it’s realistic to say that people are utterly going to change their lifestyle because of concerns about climate,' Gates said to Akshat Rathi in an episode of the Bloomberg podcast, 'Zero,' which published on Thursday.

"The only real solution, Gates said, is to innovate better and cheaper alternatives."
