What has this guy been smoking lately?
Billionaire Bill Gates has been pushing all sorts of crazy ideas over the past year. As the cofounder of Microsoft–a software company that scaled–he has been quite successful in the computer industry. However, he is certainly not a scientist or a medical professional of any sort. He also is NOT an economist.
Yet, he keeps wanting to tell the world what to do with our health and our economy.
Now he’s telling us what to eat.
Get this–In an interview on Sunday, Billy Billionaire said rich countries (that includes the U.S., of course) should transition to 100% synthetic beef.
He went on to say the U.S. switching to plant-based meats like those sold by Impossible Foods or Beyond Meats will be “required” for saving the planet.
Gates has proven he can scale a business, and he is now optimistic that synthetic meat companies like Breakthrough Energy Ventures be able to grow way beyond their current status of 1% of the meat industry.
Bill also acknowledges the political challenges to get his dream implemented. “Saying to people, ‘You can’t have cows anymore’–talk about a politically unpopular approach to things.”
I’ve got a real beef with Bill’s latest idea–and so do many folks on Twitter:
Theres no “if” about switching to synthetic beef like @BillGates suggests. Its when. Its inevitable. It will happen whether you like it or not. In 15 years we’ll be growing our meat.

I’m thinking that’s his problem… he’s been eating synthetic meat and it’s scrambled his brains

When Bill Gates gives up his TWO Gulfstream G650ER private jets, I’ll consider switching to synthetic meat. Actually, no I won’t.

I can’t deal with this monster @BillGates
Heavily invests in lab meat companies, then buys up so much land in the US that he becomes the largest farmland owner in the country and now urges all nations to buy his synthetic beef over natural cattle.

BILL GATES, big investor in synthetic meat & in the militant organizations lobbying for its implementation (eg. Good Food Institute) & media hailing its virtues (eg. Guardian), wants to use REGULATION to move ALL rich countries to … 100% synthetic beef. https://t.co/KMxLRZgq3T pic.twitter.com/o5rValYwnn
