Bill Gates and about 18 other billionaires like Jeff Bezos (Amazon CEO) have teamed up and created a firm called Breakthrough Energy Ventures. By fronting $1 billion their goal is to create clean energy sources at a cheaper cost. They’re planning to tackle emissions issues in manufacturing, transportation, agriculture, electricity, and buildings.
Now if someone like me became a Microsoft billionaire and retired, I’d probably by a beach Mansion in Newport and buy a dozen sports cars. But I will always admire Bill Gates because he alway insists on being charitable, humble, and reasonable, no matter how wealthy or famous he has become. Thank you, Bill.
