"Gates, the co-founder of Microsoft and the world's second richest person, has devoted much of his time in recent years to his family foundation, which aims to help reach the SDG objectives, including ending extreme poverty and combating climate change by 2030."

I commend Gates on his efforts. But I'm afraid extreme poverty is going to continue if China and India and other countries don't do something to curb their population growth. Combating climate change? Even if we stopped all burning of fossil fuels, the Earth's climate is gonna change, we had better adapt.

By the way, can Gates still jump over office chairs?

Many ways to start drawing down CO2 since just stopping pollution isn't enough. We have to take down what is already up there since it'll last hundreds of years.

The fertility rate of both India and China is below the world average. China's is below the level needed to sustain the current population level, India's just above.
