Important BG quotes:

“You have to help the rest of the world get energy at a reasonable price to get anywhere.”

“We’re putting 90 percent of the subsidies in deployment—this is true in Europe and the United States—not in R&D.”

“You need fundamental breakthroughs, which come more out of basic research.”

” You’re never going to get the amount of CO2 emitted to go down unless you deal with the one magic metric, which is CO2 per kilowatt-hour.”

Take a look at the full interview. It’s quite interesting to get the opinions of a tech great on the present day state of energy and possible future pathways.
