比尔盖茨的公开信:能源与时间

2018-06-08 投稿作者:__演(自己。 点击:28

More time More energy If the world can put more of both into the hands of the poorest, we believe it will allow millions of dreams to take flight Just imagine, for a minute, life without energy Without access to energy, the poor are stuck in the dark, denied all of these benefits and opportunities that come with power

-->

If you could have one superpower, what would it be?

若你能拥有超能力,那会是什么呢?

More time. More energy. If the world can put more of both into the hands of the poorest, we believe it will allow millions of dreams to take flight. Just imagine, for a minute, life without energy. Without access to energy, the poor are stuck in the dark, denied all of these benefits and opportunities that come with power.

多点金钱,多点能源。如果世界可以多匀些金钱和能源给最为穷困的人们,我相信数以百万计的梦想就能起航。想象下,如果有一分钟时间生活中没有了能源会是怎样。无法获得能源,穷苦的人们就会就会深陷黑暗,无法享受能源带来的便利与机会。

What I needed was an equation that would help me understand how we might get our CO2 down to zero.Here’s what I came up with: None of the first three—population, services, and energy—are getting close to zero. But to stop climate change and make energy affordable for everyone, we’re also going to need some new inventions.

我所需要的是一个等式,可以助我理解如何把二氧化碳排放量降至零。 我想到的如下:人口、服务和能源这前三项都没有减至零。但若要阻止气候变化,让人人能享用得起能源,我们仍需要新发明。

It would help, of course, if we had a great system for storing solar and wind power. But right now, the best storage option is rechargeable batteries, and they are expensive. Lithium-ion batteries like the one inside your laptop are still the gold standard.So we need more powerful, more economical solutions. In short, we need an energy miracle.

当然,如果我们有个不错的系统可以储存太阳能和风能,便有所帮助。但目前,最佳的能源储存选择是可充电电池,但同时也贵。你手提里的锂电池目前仍是黄金标准,所以我们需要更有力、更经济的解决方案。简言之,我们需要一个能源的奇迹。

New ways to make solar and wind power available to everyone around the clock could be one solution. Many of these ideas won’t work, but that’s okay. Each dead end will teach us something useful and keep us moving forward.

人人每时每刻都能用上太阳能和风能固然是解决方式之一。很多这类想法无甚作用,但也无妨。每一次陷入绝路都可以找到有益的方法、助我们前行。

But to find thousands of ways that won’t work, you first need to try thousands of different ideas. I recently helped launch an effort by more than two dozen private citizens that will complementgovernment research aimed at delivering energy miracles being done by several countries. It’s all .

但要找的数千种行不通的方法,得先有上千种不同的想法。多国政府所正致力能源奇迹的实施,最近有近三十个公民在帮忙完善研究,我也助他们一臂之力。

First, it’s important for everyone to get educated about this energy challenge. Second, if you’re someone with some crazy-sounding ideas to solve our energy challenge, the world needs you. In the end, the goal is to change what we think of as normal.

首先,每个人都要知晓这次能源挑战,这很重要。其次,如果你有解决能源挑战的奇思妙想,世界需要你。最后,目标是要改变我们习以为常的一切。

Our own experience working together on health, development, and energy the last two decades has been one of the most rewarding parts of our lives. It has transformed who we are and continues to fuel our optimism about how much the lives of the poorest people will improve in the years ahead.

过去二十年里我们一同致力于健康、发展和能源,这是我们生命中最有回报的部分,让我们有所改变,让我们信心满满地看到将来我们还能帮怎样帮助最贫苦的人们改善他们的生活。
