Bill Gates Wants You to Stop Eating Real Meat and Switch to Synthetic

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:
