Global Education Project, Victoria's curator insight, September 11, 2013 7:53 PM

During this TED talk Bill Gates focuses on climate change and how we can get our carbon emissions down to zero. He addresses population, services (food, heating etc), energy and CO2 usage and innovations before outlining a different type of nuclear reactor in order reach zero emissions by 2050.

A nuclear reactor that is its own waste disposal unit. Definitely worth watching.
