Gates Leads on Climate Change
Call him a rainmaker. With last week’s Paris climate talks came a surprise announcement: the creation of a new multibillion-dollar clean-energy fund led by Bill Gates. This Innovation Fund will bring together private- and public-sector leaders to focus resources on game-changing clean-energy technologies. In my role overseeing the White House’s outreach to the private sector, I’ve long seen what’s possible when private leaders use their capacities to help tackle our collective challenges. And here, Gates continues to lead by example.
