Maybe Elizabeth Warren is right and we need to shut billionaires down? Here’s the latest from Bill Gates. . .

And, yes, it’s all about climate change:

The Hill is quoting from an interview Gates gave to MIT Technology Review:

“I do think all rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef,” Gates said when asked about how countries can help to reduce methane emissions when it comes to food production. “You can get used to the taste difference, and the claim is they’re going to make it taste even better over time.”

And he’s talking about the plant-based meat that’s already on the market and not some fancy lab-grown beef from the future:

Impossible and Beyond have a road map, a quality road map and a cost road map, that makes them totally competitive,” Gates said, referring to popular plant-based meat companies. “As for scale today, they don’t represent 1% of the meat in the world, but they’re on their way.”

Put us in the “I’ll pass” category as well:

Maybe Gates can pay people to switch to plant-based meat, but that might not work for everyone. LOL:

And here’s Rep. Thomas Massie from Kentucky making some important points on what this move really means.

“Bill Gates is an elitist who thinks governments should control people “beneath” him like livestock”:

And, as Rep. Massie points out, only puts more power in the hands of major corporations.

“Bill Gates is a also menace to free and self-sufficient people. Forcing people to eat only synthetic food, using government regulation, means only corporations can prepare it. People would not be able to raise food themselves. That’s fine if it’s a choice. It’s slavery otherwise”:

We’ll end the post with this mic drop.

“Not a man to be trusted with your food supply or anything else for that matter”:

True and true.
