The World’s Richest Socialist?
Bill Gates Says That Capitalism Cannot Save Us from Climate Change
From the article:
There’s no fortune to be made. Even if you have a new energy source that costs the same as today’s and emits no CO2, it will be uncertain compared with what’s tried-and-true and already operating at unbelievable scale and has gotten through all the regulatory problems.
Without a substantial carbon tax, there’s no incentive for innovators or plant buyers to switch.
Since World War II, US-government R&D has defined the state of the art in almost every area. The private sector is in general inept.
The climate problem has to be solved in the rich countries. China and the US and Europe have to solve CO2 emissions, and when they do, hopefully they’ll make it cheap enough for everyone else.
Oh my…who is he trying to kid? The world’s richest man wants YOU to be taxed to death. Because everything will be funneled back to the consumer through these “carbon” taxes. You can bet your bottom dollar on that.
And Bill Gates won’t make a penny on it? There’s absolutely no personal benefit for him? He apparently didn’t exactly distribute all his wealth, right? And you get to be the world’s richest man…how exactly?
Isn’t it funny that the richest man in the world likes the idea of socialism because it will never ever pertain to him nor, effect him one iota.
ONLY FOR THEE, NOT FOR ME…
