The same liberal billionaire who’s spending a fortune trying to get the plebeians to eat synthetic beef and quit using fossil fuels is now admitting he can’t force them to adopt eco-extremist habits.
Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates clapped back at eco-extremists wielding climate change as a “moral crusade” to force people to change their consumption habits. He conceded on the Sept. 29 edition of the Bloomberg Zero podcast that it wasn’t “realistic to say that people are utterly going to change their lifestyle because of concerns about climate.” Host Akshat Rathi had asked Gates if a “social and political revolution” was required to drive people to implement eco-extremist habits in their daily lives. Gates responded by pinpointing a stark reality that’s sure to undercut the revolutionary aspirates of climate activists: “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.”
Bill Gates slams the climate “moral crusade” on the Sept. 29 edition of Bloomberg Zero.
Gates said he’s “looking at what the world has to do to get to zero [emissions], not using climate as a moral crusade.” His statement comes ad the liberal media are on an obsessed “crusade” of their own to compel viewers into believing man-made climate change is to blame for the deadly Hurricane Ian.
Gates went a step further, citing “the collective action problem” around climate change, noting that it would not be solved without a centralized, powerful force. Was he saying the quiet part out loud?
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. Other than immense central authority to have people just obey, I think the collective action problem is just completely not solvable.
Distancing himself from the “moral crusade” argument is pretty hypocritical for Gates. Gates reportedly pontificated to the MIT Technology Review in February 2021 that “all rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef.” Podcaster Joe Rogan called out Gates earlier this year for looking “like shit” physically while lecturing the rest of the world to change its diet. “A guy like that telling people about– he’s got these breasts and this gut — and I’m like, this is crazy.” [Emphasis added.]
