He has tackled the construction industry (finally) by making it more efficient with better quality by enabling high-rise apts/condos for 50% less cost and in half the time. He has a solution for clean energy that reduces CO2 by 80% in the short-term (wind and solar haven’t reduced CO2 at all), an education solution that provides the capital to replace half of our schools and incorporate new learning delivery methods, reliable agriculture at have the cost and more efficient charitable giving.  It’s going to be disruptive.

    Solve something. THAT will make a difference.
