  1. The first minutes of briefing goals and milestones settings were truly amazing, Bill Gates has definitively excellent management skills… but when he started talking about the start up that uses uranium disposals, then was disappointed, too risky, haven’t had enough yet with Fukushima? Once implemented this plan, there will be no turning back; better to take a couple of years to hope for a better energy miracle proposal.

  2. Hey Kermit’s a bright guy too. If royalty wasn’t just a historic form of self perpetuating gangsterism as opposed to altruistic intelligence i’d say Bill for King (of the world).

  3. someone has to say it. He sounds like Kermit The Frog. He could easily voice the character and nobody would notice.

    That being said, he’s a genius and we should all listen to what he says 😀

  4. Bill Gates is one of the most dangerous assholes on the planet.

  5. This CO2 hysteria is a scam, produced by people like Bill Gates. There is no real proof that we are warming the globe, just cooked numbers and bought scientist that speaks through their wallets.

    • Global warming is real, but..all the usual suspects have also found ways to make money out of it and usurp the positions of the well-meaning ‘greenies’. It has always been a feature of the 1% ers to profit off both sides of any controversy, as they do and have done with wars…finance both sides. They also push the NO Global warming side when they try to justify burning fossil fuels for energy, chem-trails from aircraft, exhaust from cars,, raising cattle/soy, etc.
      Whichever point we take , we must ALL look at taking care of our world better, and dirty air is dirty, no matter what chemicals are in them or not. For that to happen, we need to find the truth and solve the problems without the shadowy figures behind it all, who fan the flames of either side and who really don’t care which side we shift to. Cleaning up our own Earth isn’t a bad thing, Global warming or not. BTW..I don’t blame you for disagreeing with anything BG says.

  6. k  Didn’t any one notice that he said “if we do a good job with vacccine, and reproductive heatlh care , we can bring that number down(population) So  we  being told that vacines and reproductive health services are good for us should make it more likely for our children to survive……. but if it reduces population it will have to sterilze the population thru theese vaciness ect.
    ….

    • Dude, population numbers will drop with better healthcare and vaccines because with lower child mortality, people decide to have fewer children. That’s all, and you can read that everywhere. If you really think anybody wants to sterilize people with a vaccination program, you need to throw your tinfoil hat away and go out more.

      • You need to put on your thinking hat. You need to tear down that wall
        of ignorance that has been shielding you from the truth. Yes, I know it’s painful.
