    BILL GATES has opened up about his ongoing feud with fellow billionaire Elon Musk. In an interview with BBC Radio 4's Today programme, the 66-year-old responded to allegations that he had bet against Tesla stock. 2Elon Musk has accused Bill Gates of shorting Tesla stockCredit: AP Last week, Musk, who is CEO of the U.S. electric car firm, accused Gates of "shorting" Tesla stock. That's a way of making money by waging that a company will lose value. Musk, 55, has also mocked Gates' weight on Twitter. "There's no need for him to be nice to me," Gates said. Musk overtook Gates last year to become the world's richest person as Tesla's value soared during the Covid-19 pandemic.

    Mangrove Lithium's pilot plant in Vancouver, Canada.Photo courtesy: Saad Dara, CEO Mangrove Lithium Bill Gates' investment fund Breakthrough Energy Ventures recently invested $10 million in a seven-person start-up with no revenue and no customers, Mangrove Lithium. It's a niche investment, but could have critical implications for the rapidly growing electric vehicle market, as its founders aim to improve a very specific part of the lithium supply chain: Turning raw lithium into material for batteries. Lithium is used in batteries for electric vehicles because it is the lightest metal and has the highest charge-to-weight ratio, which matters when you are building a battery for transportation. Over the last decade, the number of electric vehicles has expanded rapidly, surpassing 10 million electric vehicles on the road globally, according to the International Energy Agency. As demand for electric vehicles continues to grow, so too will demand for lithium. Growth in the number and size of batteries for electric vehicles will be responsible for more than 90% of demand for lithium by 2030, according to Andrew Miller, the chief operating officer of Benchmark Mineral Intelligence, a...
    A phalanx of billionaires are backing a new mining initiative in Greenland, in what they hope will boost access to minerals used to manufacture electric cars. It’s significant news in a country that has not always celebrated natural resource exploration. And it has some environmental scientists concerned. The source of the billionaire money is an initiative founded by Bill Gates, Breakthrough Energy Ventures, whose investors include Jeff Bezos, Richard Branson, Jack Ma, Ray Dalio, and Michael Bloomberg. Gates founded Breakthrough Energy in 2015 as a vehicle for combating climate change, and it has raised $2 billion to date, including a $1 billion funding round completed earlier this year. The organization has invested in dozens of startups in the sustainable energy space. The Greenland project is a joint venture between a publicly traded British firm, Bluejay Mining, and KoBold Metals, an American company that is paying $15 million for a majority stake in the operation. Breakthrough Energy is one of KoBold’s principal investors; the venture capital mega-firm Andreessen Horowitz is also a backer. KoBold says its use of artificial intelligence...
    Microsoft founder Bill Gates has become one of the most authoritative voices in the fight against climate change. The American mogul has revealed some of the things that does in its day to day to reduce its carbon footprint. As collected by the Daily Mail, Gates participated in a Reddit forum, where users could ask what they want. When asked what specifically he was doing to reduce his own footprint, Gates highlighted his Breakthrough Energy organization. But in addition, the American tycoon added: “Personally, I am doing much more. I drive electric cars. I have solar panels in my house. Like synthetic meat (sometimes!)”. Gates continued: “I buy green aviation fuel. I pay for Climeworks direct air capture. I help finance electric heat pumps in low-cost homes to replace natural gas. I plan to fly a lot less now that the pandemic has shown that we can get by with fewer trips, “he said. Users asked what normal people could do to reduce their carbon footprint. The Microsoft founder replied: “Educate and convince people of all political parties that...
    The renaissance of electrification that we’re seeing in passenger vehicles unfortunately won’t likely adapted to heavier forms of transportation — such as airplanes, cargo ships and semi tractor trailers — in the foreseeable future. Today’s batteries simply can’t hold enough power to sufficiently offset their weight and bulk. But that doesn’t mean that we can’t still take steps to reduce the carbon footprints of our commercial people and cargo movers. In his new book, How to Avoid a Climate Disaster: The Solutions We Have and the Breakthroughs We Need, tech luminary Bill Gates — with the help of countless subject matter experts — lays out his comprehensive plan to halt the oncoming environmental apocalypse, blunt the effects of human-caused climate change, and keep Earth habitable for the next generation.

    (CBS SF / CNN) — Elon Musk is once again publicly downplaying the risks of Covid-19. In a wide-ranging interview with the journalist Kara Swisher, the Tesla and SpaceX CEO said he would not take a Covid-19 vaccine when one becomes available, and declined to say whether he feels a duty to pay employees who want to stay home to avoid contracting the virus. “I’m not at risk for Covid, nor are my kids,” said Musk during Monday’s episode of the New York Times podcast “Sway.” Musk has long cultivated a public persona of an eccentric entrepreneur who knows better than the experts and isn’t afraid to offer controversial opinions. On the podcast, Musk argued that instead of sweeping stay-at-home orders to mitigate the spread of coronavirus, “anyone who is at risk should be quarantined until the storm passes.” When Swisher confronted Musk with the possibility that people would still die in the process, he replied bluntly: “Everybody dies.” “The question is what, on balance, serves the greater good,” Musk continued, adding that the lockdowns did not accomplish that and the pandemic is a “no-win situation.”...

    Neurologists are to start treating Alzheimer's patients by sending electrical currents deep into their brain. A team at Imperial College London and the UK Dementia Research Institute have been given a $1.5million (£1.14million) grant by US philanthropists, including Bill Gates, to trial the technology. Researchers have selected 24 patients with early-stage Alzheimer's to undergo the therapy, which will involve two weeks of daily hour-long sessions. After dozens of failed trials for dementia drugs, experts have high hopes for this new method. The technology – called temporal interference brain stimulation – involves applying electrodes to the scalp.   The electrodes then send two harmless high-frequency beams into the brain. These beams are of slightly different frequencies – 2,000 Hz and 2,005 Hz – and when they cross they create a third current, a low-frequency wave of 5 Hz. And it is this new wave which researchers hope will make all the difference. It will be triggered in the hippocampus – an area deep in the brain responsible for forming new memories. This will hopefully revive the area's mitochondria, the energy...
    Tesla CEO Elon Musk responded to a broadside from Bill Gates by tweeting “Billy G is not my lover,” and “The rumor that Bill Gates & I are lovers is completely untrue.” The late-Wednesday quip came after a Twitter user alerted him to a CNBC interview in which the 64-year-old Microsoft co-founder took issue with Musk’s attitude towards the coronavirus pandemic, which Musk called “dumb” in March. “Elon’s positioning is to maintain a high level of outrageous comments,” Gates said in the interview. “He’s not much involved in vaccines. He makes a great electric car. His rockets work well, so he’s allowed to say these things. I hope that he doesn’t confuse areas he’s not involved in too much.” The pinned “Billy G” tweet on Musk’s page, which has 37.2 million followers, is surrounded by musical notes, a reference to Michael Jackson’s 1982 hit song “Billy Jean”. Musk has been outspoken about the pandemic, saying on multiple occasions — including on a podcast interview with Joe Rogan — that false positives and incorrectly attributed causes of death were blowing concern...
