5. Thanks.

The short version is that Gates is staunchly pro economic growth, and "green" growth is not a thing. Even if we solved the energy problem (i.e., we can produce the necessary energy for the rate of growth Gates and others are targeting with zero greenhouse gas emissions), there are several other ecological limits/potential tipping points, and too much more growth will overshoot those significantly.

I'm happy to discuss this further if you're interested.
