Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg “mark” it clean by launching the “Clean Energy Research Fund”, as an attempt to induce the funding that was made by the private sector towards clean energy. This is basically a campaign that had been launched to reduce the amount of carbon emissions from each and every individual. The launch of the “BreakThrough Energy Coalition” was announced by Zuckerberg in his Facebook page, which marked the need for energy that produced less or if possible, no carbon at all. The BreakThrough Energy Coalition concentrates on working together with countries and its governments, in order to ensure that proper funding is provided for the researchers who are working on the steps to reduce the emission of carbon level and eventually make sure that everybody gets access to energy at an affordable rate. The Coalition claims to concentrate on five basic principles which is to Invest

While Zuckerberg states that,” Solving the clean energy problem is an essential part of building a better world”; Bill Gates states that, ” if we change the price of one thing that would really lift up the lives of the poor people everywhere, it would be the price of energy ”, both acknowledging the fact that energy needs to be available at a less expensive rate. Bill gates also claims (in the video https://youtu.be/YhgIY-Vghj4) that when digital revolutions like The Internet were introduced as a result of Government investment, the attempt to motivate the government to invest more on the BreakThrough Energy Coalition would be fruitful. He also says that the following formula:

CO2= P (people) x S (services per person) x

E (energy per service) x C (CO2 per unit energy)

will accelerate the funding for research and innovation. He is also optimistic about the fact that the necessary investments will be achieved if the countries, the governments and the various companies and industries come together to find out the solution behind the particular problem and that a BREAKTHROUGH will be made for our enhancement.
