Bill Gates Claims Confronted over Flying Private Jets, Claims He's 'Not Part of the Problem'

Microsoft founder Bill Gates has claimed his climate change activism does not conflict with his usage of private jets.

During an interview with the BBC last Friday, broadcaster Amol Rajan confronted Bill Gates about why people should take his climate activism seriously, given he flies private all over the world.

Gates argued it was okay for him to fly private, and he was part of the solution, not the problem.

“Well, I buy the gold standard, of funding Climeworks, to do direct air capture that far exceeds my family’s carbon footprint,” Gates said.

Gates invested in Climeworks in 2022, a Swiss company specializing in carbon dioxide air capture technology.

The news release said:

“Today, Climeworks is proud to take its collaboration with Microsoft one step further by becoming its first long-term carbon removal supplier.”

” The two companies signed a 10-year carbon removal offtake agreement, where Climeworks will permanently remove 10’000 tons of CO₂ emissions from the atmosphere on Microsoft’s behalf.”

This second and forward-looking commitment is one of the largest DAC agreements ever signed and proof of Microsoft’s conviction of both Climeworks’ technology and ability to scale.”

According to its website, “Climeworks uses a technology called ‘direct air capture’ to capture carbon dioxide directly from the air.”

“When the removed CO₂ is combined with underground storage, it allows the permanent removal of excess and legacy CO₂ emissions, which can no longer contribute to climate change.”

Bill Gates added:

“So should I stay at home and not come to Kenya and learn about farming and malaria?”

“Anyway, I’m comfortable with the idea that not only am I not part of the problem by paying for the offsets, but also through the billions that my breakthrough energy group is spending that I’m part of the solution.”

“Offsets” isn’t the point. If you’re serious about “Climate Change” you minimize your contribution to it. Until I no longer receive “junk mail” I will be assured that the money paid to the post office is of greater concern than the impact on the climate. He sounds like the Pigs in Animal Farm.

If you are a rich progressive, you are allowed to have any carbon footprint you want.
You working people have to give up your cars and stop going on vacations.
How convenient.

I believe it was Glenn Beck’s book “Arguing With Idiots” that talked about how Barbra Streisand had a horse barn that was air conditioned. When an assistance was asked how she can justify the carbon it had it was explained she was talking about how it was the public ( meaning the “little people” ) she meant that needs to reduce their carbon footprint – not her !

Bill Gates and his views on eugenics are the problem. He should be arrested. Did anyone ask about how he got Epstein to see if he could get Gates a Nobel Prize?
