We have now entered into the stage of democracy where billionaires just openly tell the public what to do.
Bill Gates, as one of our grand overlords, has now declared that it is time for us to stop eating meat.
It’s disappointing that we won’t be allowed to eat our favorite foods anymore, but what are you gonna do?
He’s the boss and he makes the decisions. That’s our values.
Bill Gates has urged rich nations to move to “100% synthetic beef” in order to address the greenhouse gas emissions driving global climate change.
In his new book, How to Avoid a Climate Disaster, the billionaire philanthropist stresses that while it remains possible for humanity to avert the disaster through technological achievements, government policy will ultimately be needed.
Speaking to the MIT Technology Review magazine, he said that some governments would be constrained by their wealth: “I don’t think the poorest 80 countries will be eating synthetic beef. I do think all rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef.”
Burping cows bred for beef are a massive contributor to emissions of the potent greenhouse gas methane, which has reached record levels according to research published last July.
The amount of methane in the atmosphere grew massively between 2000 and 2017, leading to what researchers believe could be a global warming increase of up to four degrees Celsius by the end of the century.
Scientists warn that this is a dangerous threshold for humanity to cross, leading to an increased risk of natural disasters due to ecological disruption which would cause mass famine and migration.
“Emissions from cattle and other ruminants are almost as large as those from the fossil fuel industry for methane,” according to Dr Robert Jackson. “People joke about burping cows without realising how big the source really is.”
Talking about the problem to MIT Technology Review, Mr Gates described the livestock problem as “very difficult” noting that even compounds which reduce methane emissions weren’t enough.
“You can get used to the taste difference, and the claim is they’re going to make it taste even better over time,” added Mr Gates.
It’s a little bit scary that with the weather as cold as it is, Master Gates is still going to make it even colder. But I guess what science says is that the entire earth must literally be a single sheet of solid ice.
And we have to follow science. We’re not a bunch of inbred hicks from the trailer park. We believe in science and we do as it says, and science says that the earth should be transformed into a solid sheet of ice.
When cows fart they make the air hotter, and that’s why in our quest to freeze everything, we must get rid of cows.
Those are the true values of democracy. It’s who we are.
