Bill Gates is now planning to work more closely with Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos to deal with climate crisis that could dwarf the current pandemic in fatalities and global impact.

Meanwhile, Jeff Bezos has pledged even more to combating climate change than Gates. The two CEOs are hoping to collaborate to back costly early-stage green alternatives to current technologies.

Unlike the pandemic, it's hard to get people to focus on catastrophes that may be decades away in enough time to avert them, Gates mentioned.
