(ORDO NEWS) — Microsoft founder Bill Gates warned of a possible natural disaster following the coronavirus epidemic.
Gates said: “Diseases associated with all sorts of viruses will occur regularly, if you do not deal with another problem – climate change.”
According to the billionaire, the number of victims of natural disasters may exceed the number of victims of the COVID-19 epidemic.
The businessman stressed: “If you want to understand how climate change will affect a person, then look at the situation with COVID-19 and imagine it tenfold.”
Gates called on authorities and scientists to fight carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere. He recalled that the United States ranks second after China in CO2 emissions into the atmosphere.
The businessman believes that it is also important to rethink the way things and food are produced, as well as help farmers adapt to climate change.
