Bill Gates visits Capitol to talk climate change
Microsoft founder Bill Gates was spotted in the Capitol Thursday, planning to meet with leaders of the newly formed Senate Climate Solutions Caucus.
Sen. Christopher Coons (D-Del.), one of the founders of the caucus, called Gates “one of the most significant innovators, entrepreneurs and business leaders of the last 50 years and who is a major player in climate change and global development and poverty issues.”
Coons said the meeting has no agenda, but he’s interested to hear Gates’s thoughts on what the country should be investing in and “what he thinks are promising technologies that could contribute to battling climate change.”
