Innovations were needed to avert a climate disaster, Gates said in remarks published Monday in the German business daily Handelsblatt. This was not impossible, but would be very difficult, he added.


Gates also called for a five-fold increase in government investment in clean energy research and other climate innovations worldwide within the next decade.

The entrepreneur and philanthropist estimates that research worth at least $110 billion will be needed annually.


In his new book, "How to avoid a climate disaster," Gates calls for CO2 emissions to be completely eliminated by 2050 in a bid to avoid enormous environmental and economic damage.


Gates says man must change the physical economy at a pace never seen before. In addition, he believes that CO2 taxes, certificate trading and alternative energies such as solar and wind power are indispensable.
