While people in Europe face the prospect of not being able to afford to heat their homes this winter, and experiencing freezing dark blackouts, Bill Gates declared that “in the long run” the energy crisis is a “good” thing.
Touting his Breakthrough Energy Ventures climate-technology (carbon tax) investment company, Gates told CNBC “People did get a little optimistic about how quickly the transition could be done.”
“Without the Russian natural gas being available in Europe… it’s a setback,” Gates continued.
“We need to find non Russian hydrocarbon sources to substitute for those so there’s coal plants running and variety of things, because, you know, keeping, you know, people warm, keeping those economies in decent shape is a priority,” Gates asserted.
He continued, “Now, on the other hand, it’s good for the long run, because people won’t want to be dependent on Russian natural gas so they’ll move to these new approaches more rapidly.”

Gates published a “State of the Energy Transition,” Tuesday, declaring that it should be the responsibility of countries such as the United States which have prospered from burning fossil fuels to move to completely decarbonize all sectors of the economy.
He writes “Many countries in Europe and North America filled the atmosphere with carbon to achieve prosperity, and it is both unrealistic and unfair to expect everyone else to forgo a more comfortable life because that carbon turned out to change the climate.”
Gates also writes “I don’t think the market by itself can press reset on an entire economy in just a few decades,” adding “We need a plan to speed the process up.”

Well, there are SO many stupid statements in his assertions of “doing without” (he isn’t, guaranteed). Like this one: “I don’t think the market by itself can press reset on an entire economy in just a few decades,” adding “We need a plan to speed the process up.” The man is a psychopath. He so calmly points out that having energy will all take a few decades and HE nor his globalist BUDDIES have any plan at all–since they gott’a make one because he sees himself as a savior, a god. While adding a slight to push forward humanity’s unworthiness… Read more »
I’m sorry, but you are way behind on the “narrative”. Gates doesn’t see himself as a savior or “god”. He sees himself as a warrior against mankind; a destroyer. He knows EXACTLY what the result of ALL of his plans will be, and he’s completely cool with it. You need to get up to speed.
That’s your comment? A number of possible subjects to address and Gates’ mindset on being a savior or god is your focus? OK.
I have a different opinion. You know, ‘different opinion’? Not your opinion. However, I am less and less surprised to find an arrogant comment, such as yours, lauding your personal expertise on Gates’ mindset as a means to ridicule others.
You must know him personally.
