Bill Gates Not A Big Fan Of Telling People To Eat Bugs To Stop Climate Apocalypse

Well, of course not, because he’s rich, and he, like most Warmists, has no intention of giving up his modern lifestyle

Bill Gates says telling people to stop eating meat and buying big houses will never solve climate change

Climate change will never be solved by asking or expecting others to live greener lifestyles, according to Bill Gates.

Speaking on Thursday’s episode of Bloomberg’s Zero podcast, Gates said expectations that people were going to “utterly change their lifestyle because of concerns about climate” were “unrealistic.”

“You can have a cultural revolution where you’re trying to throw everything up, you can create a North Korean–type situation where the state’s in control,” he said. “Other than immense central authority to have people just obey, I think the collective action problem is just completely not solvable.”

Although Gates has a long history of working to alleviate the effects of climate change, the Microsoft cofounder stressed in Thursday’s episode of Zero that “not that many people are prepared to be worse off because of climate requirements.”

“Anyone who says that we will tell people to stop eating meat, or stop wanting to have a nice house, and we’ll just basically change human desires, I think that that’s too difficult,” he said on Thursday. “You can make a case for it. But I don’t think it’s realistic for that to play an absolutely central role.”

So, what’s the solution? Because everything coming from the Cult of Climastrology is about government forcing people to act in certain ways

Gates, whose foundations have invested hundreds of millions in climate initiatives, said last year that so-called Green Premiums—which offer people the chance to pay more to do or consume the same things without the emissions—could be a viable solution to reducing emissions without demanding people rethink their consumption habits.

So, paying fees and taxes? Where do they go?

The billionaire philanthropist, who said he pays $9 million a year to counteract his carbon footprint, told podcast host Akshat Rathi that a better solution is to invest in green innovations—but he noted that there are various other important social issues competing for funding.

Which requires lots of taxes. It’s really no wonder a very rich guy wants to pretend to Do Something by purchasing carbon offsets so he can jet around the world, eh?

    Teach is lambasting Bill Gates with agreeing with him. Why? Because Gates understands the threat of global warming so he is one of the “they”.

    MAGAism is a cult. One Conspiracy to Hold Them, One Conspiracy to Mold Them, One Conspiracy to Rule them!! LOL.

      Dear Elwood:

      Gates suffers from the “I am rich so I must know everything syndrome.

      He’s not unique. Rich athletes, actors/actresses, musicians and over paid journalists suffer from variants of the disease.

      Worse, some useful idiots actually pay attention to them.

      It would be helpful if someone could just tell them to shut the fuck up and then they doing so.

    That is because Bill Gates Understands as is the rest of the world beginning to do so.

    What you might ask?

    I am glad you asked.

    Climate Change is a problem to the extent that it requires people to adapt their lifestyles to fit the ever-changing climate. That’s it. The world does not see the powers that be, screaming in fear, throwing up their hands, and rushing to their bunkers on MT. FUJI or where ever, in fear of melting glaciers of which perhaps 40-50 percent of them will melt and will take thousands of years and not dozens as the AGW NAZIS predict.

    Simple. AGW is bullshit with some truth to it and the people know it.

    “He understands the threat..” It’s just that he, nor anyone else, can show any evidence of a threat.

  4. drowningpuppies says:

    With his operating system, there’s no wonder why Bill Gates is no fan of “bugs”.

  5. anon says:

    Perhaps Bill Gates finally understands that if we start eating bugs, and by the way it will take a lot of bugs to feed ~7B people, that there won’t be any bugs left to fertilize any crops.
