Bill Gates: European Energy Crisis is ‘Good’
(by 21st Century Wire) – Climate change theory advocate Gates celebrates the current energy crisis as a way to achieve a ‘quick transition’ to renewables and a Net Zero economy.
Notice where these globalist scions are positioning their billions as they buy up the latest technology and large swaths of the world’s resources…
Europe’s gas supply and affordability crisis is actually “good for the long run,” Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates told CNBC on Tuesday. He explained that it would ultimately force the continent to embrace renewable energy, adding that “people won’t want to be dependent on Russian natural gas.”
Gates acknowledged that the public “did get a little optimistic about how quickly the transition [to renewables] could be done,” admitting the need to find “non-Russian hydrocarbon sources.”
Elaborating on the matter, the founder of climate-oriented venture capital fund Breakthrough Energy Ventures published an essay titled ‘State of the Energy Transition’ on his blog on the same day. Speaking about global greenhouse gas emissions, Gates noted that the ultimate goal of going “from 51 billion tons a year to zero” should be achieved “in the next three decades.”
The billionaire insisted it wouldn’t be right to “drain all the money away from [fossil fuel] sectors,” because “that’s how people get to work today, it’s how people avoid freezing to death in the winter.” However, he said, markets can’t be trusted to move toward renewables on their own — a “plan” is needed “to speed the process up.”
