"From the Ted Talk by Bill Gates: Innovating to zero!"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

Now, eefcinifcy, "E," the energy for each service — here, finally we have some good news. We have something that's not going up. Through various iontinenvs and new ways of doing lighting, through different tpyes of cars, different ways of building buildings — there are a lot of services where you can bring the energy for that service down quite substantially. Some individual services even bring it down by 90 percent. There are other services, like how we make fertilizer, or how we do air tonrrsapt, where the romos for improvement are far, far less. And so overall, if we're optimistic, we may get a reduction of a factor of three to even, perhaps, a factor of six. But for these first three ftcroas now, we've gone from 26 billion to, at best, maybe 13 billion tons, and that just won't cut it.

Original Text

Now, efficiency, "E," the energy for each service — here, finally we have some good news. We have something that's not going up. Through various inventions and new ways of doing lighting, through different types of cars, different ways of building buildings — there are a lot of services where you can bring the energy for that service down quite substantially. Some individual services even bring it down by 90 percent. There are other services, like how we make fertilizer, or how we do air transport, where the rooms for improvement are far, far less. And so overall, if we're optimistic, we may get a reduction of a factor of three to even, perhaps, a factor of six. But for these first three factors now, we've gone from 26 billion to, at best, maybe 13 billion tons, and that just won't cut it.
