In his year-end letter, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates says his to-do record for 2019 comprises persuading U.S. leaders to regain America’s leading role in nuclear energy research and embrace advanced nuclear technologies corresponding to the idea being complex by means of his personal TerraPower undertaking. From a file: “The world needs to be working on lots of solutions to stop climate change,” Gates wrote in the wide-ranging letter, launched Saturday night time. “Advanced nuclear is one, and I hope to persuade U.S. leaders to get into the game.” Gates said that tighter U.S. export restrictions, put in position by means of the Trump management, have nearly dominated out TerraPower’s grand plan to check its traveling-wave nuclear era in China. “We had hoped to build a pilot project in China, but recent policy changes here in the U.S. have made that unlikely,” Gates wrote. He mentioned “we may be able to build it in the United States” if laws are up to date and the funding local weather for nuclear energy improves.
