  • ♪♪♪ >> Stephen: HEY, EVERYBODY,

  • WELCOME BACK TO "A LATE SHOW."

  • JOINING ME NOW IS THE CO-CHAIR OF THE BILL AND MELINDA GATES

  • FOUNDATION WHO'S WRITTEN A NEW BOOK CALLED "HOW TO AVOID A

  • CLIMATE DISASTER."

  • PLEASE WELCOME, BILL GATES!

  • BIGOT, THANKS FOR BEING HERE!

  • >> YOU GOT IT!

  • >> Stephen: NOW, WE'RE GOING TO GET TO CLIMATE AND HOW TO

  • AVOID THE AT THIS SISTER AND ALL THE AMAZING THINGS B THAT YOU

  • AND MELINDA DO AND THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR EFFORTS, BUT THE REASON

  • YOU CAN DO ALL THOSE THINGS IS THAT YOU'RE REALLY, REALLY,

  • REALLY RICH.

  • AND, SO, I WANT TO ASK YOU A QUESTION THAT I'VE INTERVIEWED

  • YOU MANY TIMES BUT I'VE NEVER ASKED YOU THE QUESTION AND IT'S

  • ALWAYS BEEN IN THE BACK OF MY HEAD AND EVERYBODY'S HEAD, WHAT

  • DOES IT FEEL LIKE WHEN YOU BECOME THE RICHEST MAN IN THE

  • WORLD?

  • IS THAT A GOOD FEELING?

  • >> WELL, THERE'S A RESPONSIBILITY TO GIVE THAT

  • MONEY BACK IN A SMART WAY.

  • >> Stephen: NOT EVERYBODY FEELS THAT RESPONSIBILITY,

  • THOUGH.

  • SOME PEOPLE SAY THAT'S NOT ENOUGH MONEY, GIVE ME MORE.

  • WELL, IT WAS GRATIFYING THE DREAM OF SOFTWARE THAT I HAD

  • BASICALLY CAME TRUE, AND NOW I GET TO GIVE IT AWAY.

  • >> Stephen: DO YOU HAVE A 400-FOOT RACING BOAT THAT HOVERS

  • ON LITTLE SKIS AND GOES AROUND THE WORLD, LIKE SUPER CRAZY RICH

  • GUY STUFF?

  • >> I OWN A Da VINCI NOTEBOOK, WHICH THAT'S PRETTY COOL.

  • >> Stephen: DING, DING, DING, DING, DING!

  • THE JUDGES!

  • YES, YES!

  • LAST QUESTION ON THIS AND WE'LL MOVE ON TO THE GOOD STUFF.

  • IN 2008, WHEN YOU WERE NO LONGER THE RICHEST MAN IN THE WORLD,

  • WHEN WARREN BUFFETT SNAKED IT AWAY FROM YOU, DID IT STING AT

  • ALL?

  • >> OH, NO, WARREN'S ALSO A HUGE CONTRIBUTOR TO THE GIVING OF THE

  • GATES FOUNDATION AND A VERY GOOD FRIEND OF MINE.

  • >> Stephen: OKAY, OKAY.

  • O -- >> Stephen: BUT YOU GOT IT

  • BACK IN 2009.

  • YOU WERE THE RICHEST MAN IN THE WORLD AGAIN.

  • AND THE THE NEXT YEAR CARLOS SLIM COMES IN.

  • DON'T TELL ME I'M BIG BUDDIES WITH CARLOS SLIM.

  • THAT HAD TO STING A LITTLE BIT.

  • YOU'RE A COMPETITIVE GUY.

  • >> YOU KNOW, THE REASON I SHOULD DROP ON THE LIST CONTINUOUSLY

  • BECAUSE OF GIVING MONEY AWAY AND, YOU KNOW, SOME DAY I WON'T

  • BE ON THE LIST AT ALL.

  • >> Stephen: ALL RIGHT.

  • ALL RIGHT.

  • WHAT DO YOU SAY?

  • I CAN HELP YOU WITH GIVING THAT MONEY STUFF AWAY.

  • I'M RIGHT HERE, AND I'M SUPER GOOD, GENEROUS GUY, TOO.

  • THINK OF ME AS A FUNNEL, A FUNNEL!

  • DADDY JUST TAKES A LITTLE OFF THE TOP, GETS HIS BEAK WET, AND

  • ALL THE PEOPLE I'LL HELP, YOU WILL LOVE IT.

  • THIS IS THE SECOND TIME YOU AND I HAVE SPOKEN DURING COVID.

  • WHICH I CAN'T BELIEVE.

  • EITHER YOU AND I TALK A LOT OR COVID HAS GONE ON A LONG TIME,

  • AND I THINK IT'S THE SECOND ONE.

  • YOU SAID BACK THEN THAT BASICALLY THIS IS GOING TO BE --

  • THE TIMELINE IS ALL GOING TO BE BASED ON DEVELOPMENT AND

  • DISTRIBUTION OF VACCINES.

  • WE'VE GOT THEM NOW.

  • WHAT'S THE TIMELINE FOR GOING BACK TO NORMAL, IF YOUR MIND?

  • >> WELL, IT'S REALLY PHENOMENAL WHAT THE VACCINE COMPANIES HAVE

  • DONE, AND, YOU KNOW, WE'RE STILL SUPPLY LIMITED, THE LOGISTICS

  • ARE STILL GETTING WORKED UP, BUT CERTAINLY BY SUMMER WE WILL BE

  • DEMAND LIMITED AND WE SHOULD GET TRUST THE VACCINE, WE'LL GET TO

  • A LEVEL WHERE OUR FALL WILL BE PRETTY NORMAL.

  • MAYBE SOME MASKS, MAYBE NOT BIG PUBLIC EVENTS, BUT ALL THE

  • SCHOOLS, RESTAURANTS AT SOME LEVEL, FALL WILL BE

  • COMPARATIVELY NORMAL.

  • >> Stephen: HALLOWEEN PARTIES?

  • THAT'S ON THE MARGIN.

  • IF YOU LIKE, SOCIAL DISTANCING STILL AT THAT POINT.

  • >> Stephen: YOU SAID THERE ARE PROBLEMS WITH INFRASTRUCTURE,

  • GETTING THE SUPPLY CHAIN GOING, CERTAINLY THERE WERE WEATHER

  • PROBLEMS LAST WEEK, WITH THE BIG BLIZZARDS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE

  • COUNTRY GETTING IT OUT TO PEOPLE, AND, ALSO, ANTI-VAXXERS,

  • PEOPLE WHO ARE SAYING -- A GUY LITERALLY BUTTON HOLED ME IN THE

  • PARKING LOT OF MY GROCERY STORE THE OTHER DAY AND SAID I'VE GOT

  • TO SEND YOU DOCUMENTARIES ABOUT BILL GATES, DON'T TAKE THOSE

  • VACCINES.

  • I SAID, I'M GOING TO TAKE THE VACCINE.

  • IF HE PUTS A CHIP IN ME AND CONTROLS MY BODY, THAT'S FINE, I

  • JUST WANT TO BE ABLE TO HUG MY INLAWS.

  • SO WHAT CAN BE DONE TO CONVINCE PEOPLE, IN YOUR MIND, THAT THE

  • VACCINE IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO AND DOES IT INVOLVE AT ALL

  • TALKING TO SULTANS, WHICH YOU DID IN SUB-SAHARAN AFRICA TO GET

  • PEOPLE TO TAKE THE POLIO VACCINE.

  • >> THE RUMORS WERE THAT WAS TO STERILE ITS WOMEN.

  • THE RULER MET WITH ME, IT WAS QUITE SOMETHING TO GO TO HIS

  • PALACE, BUT HE PERSONALLY HAD HIS KIDS TAKE THE VACCINE, AND

  • HAD ALL OF THE OTHER RELIGIOUS LEADERS, AND, SO, THAT MADE A

  • HUGE DIFFERENCE.

  • AND, SO, WE WERE ABLE TO ANNOUNCE THAT, WHILE POLIO WAS

  • COMPLETELY GONE FROM AFRICA LAST YEAR, WE'RE DOWN TO TWO

  • COUNTRIES, AND GETTING THESE MESSAGES OUT, YOU NEED TO FIGURE

  • OUT WHO PEOPLE TRUST, THAT THEY'LL FOLLOW, YOU KNOW, AND

  • WHETHER IT'S PEOPLE OF COLOR OR VARIOUS RELIGIOUS GROUPS.

  • WE SOMEHOW NEED TO GET THE WORD OUT, THIS IS QUITE AN AMAZING

  • VACCINE THAT HELPS EVERYONE.

  • >> Stephen: YOU WANT A TEAM OF PANDEMIC FIREFIGHTERS IN THE

  • FUTURE.

  • WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY THAT?

  • >> WELL, WHEN SOMETHING LIKE THIS HITS YOU NEED PEOPLE WHOSE

  • SKILLS OF TRACKING INFECTIOUS DISEASE AND THE VARIANTS AND THE

  • NUMBERS THAT THEY ARE TOTALLY UP TO DATE AND READY TO GO.

  • AND, SO, IF WE HAVE THIS SORT OF FIRE SQUAD OF 3,000 PEOPLE WITH

  • THOSE SKILLS, THEY CAN BE WORKING ON MALARIA OR MEASLES,

  • BUT THEN WHEN ANY HINT OF THE PANDEMIC COMES, THEY'LL GO AND

  • SPECIALIZE AND REALLY TRY AND STOP IT BEFORE IT GETS

  • WIDESPREAD.

  • UNLESS YOU HAVE THOSE PEOPLE READY TO GO AND FULLY UP TO DATE

  • ON THEIR SKILLS, YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO CATCH IT EARLY.

  • >> Stephen: WELL, DURING THIS QUARANTINE, A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE

  • TAKEN UP SOME SIDE PROJECTS, LIKE, YOU KNOW, BAKING OR DOING

  • CROSSWORD PUZZLES.

  • YOU DID A SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT ONE.

  • YOU WROTE THIS BOOK, HOW TO AVOID A CLIMATE CRISIS.

  • HOW DO WE AVOID IT, WHEN THE "NEW YORK TIMES" IS ALREADY

  • REPORTING THAT CLIMATE DISRUPTION IS ALREADY BAKED IN

  • TO OUR FUTURE?

  • >> WELL, WHAT WE DO AS FAST AS WE CAN, WE TAKE OUR CURRENT

  • EMISSIONS, WHICH IS 51 BILLION TONS, TO EQUIVALENTS

  • AND DROP IT ALL THE WAY TO ZERO.

  • NOW, THAT'S GOING TO BE VERY, VERY HARD.

  • IT WILL TAKE AT LEAST ALL 30 YEARS, WE'LL HAVE TO USE ALL OF

  • THOSE YEARS, AND THERE WILL HAVE TO BE A LOT OF INNOVATION.

  • SO WE HAVE TO LEARN, OKAY, ALL THE SOURCES OF EMISSIONS, NOT

  • JUST CARS, BUT ALSO MAKING THINGS LIKE STEEL AND COMMENT

  • AND AGRICULTURE, AVIATION FUEL.

  • BECAUSE OF ALL THOSE SOURCES, IT'S GOING TO REQUIRE A BROAD

  • SET OF INNOVATIVE COMPANIES AND POLICIES WHERE WE'RE BUYING

  • THESE GREEN PRODUCTS AND GETTING THE COST TO BE MUCH LOWER FOR

  • BEING GREEN.

  • >> Stephen: THESE CHALLENGES ARE ENORMOUS, AND CERTAINLY IN

  • THE UNITED STATES THE MOST BOLD PROPOSAL IS THE GREEN NEW DEAL,

  • THOUGH THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION ALSO HAS SOMS PROPOSALS THEY

  • HAVEN'T ROLLED OUT YET, BUT THEY CLAIM TO BE SWINGING FROM THE

  • FENCES.

  • WHO'S DOING A GOOD JOB IN THE WORLD RIGHT NOW AT THIS?

  • WHO'S WORKING THE HARDEST TO PREVENT IT?

  • >> WELL, THE U.K. IS VERY IMPRESSIVE BECAUSE THEY HAVE

  • ALMOST NO COAL PLANTS LEFT, AND THEY WERE THE START OF THE COAL

  • BASED INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION.

  • THEY ARE GETTING THE OFFSHORE WIND TO COST A LOT LESS.

  • NORWAY BUYS THE MOST ELECTRIC CARS.

  • SO THERE'S A LOT OF LEADERS, BUT THE U.S. IS THE MOST IMPORTANT

  • BECAUSE WE CAN INNOVATE.

  • WE HAVE UNIVERSITIES, NATIONAL LABS, RISK CAPITOL.

  • WE LOOK TO THE WORLD TO MAKE ALL THESE GREEN PRODUCTS VERY CHEAP,

  • AND THAT WILL GIVE US A CHANCE TO EXPORT THOSE PRODUCTS AS

  • WELL.

  • >> Stephen: WE HAVE TO TAKE A QUICK BREAK, BUT WHEN WE COME

  • BACK, I'LL ASK BILL GATES ABOUT THIS GUY.

  • STICK AROUND.
