Bill Gates on energy: Innovating to zero! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JaF-fq2Zn7I)

"At TED2010, Bill Gates unveils his vision for the world's energy future, describing the need for "miracles" to avoid planetary catastrophe and explaining why he's backing a dramatically different type of nuclear reactor. The necessary goal? Zero carbon emissions globally by 2050."

Why do people entertain this man? His opinion on all sorts of things are treated seriously like the word of god from on high. My belief is he mostly stole others ideas in the first place then puts the stolen ideas together in a substandard package for $100's when it is all available for free. But then the biggest crooks and thieves are made kings and worshipped in a place where the whole system is based on theft. He supports monoploy and makes people/systems/departments/etc dependent on his second rate product. He co-operates, for commercial purposes, with the intel world at home and abroad in repression and abuses peoples privacy. His myth is that he was a self made man. Sure. If you overlook his father, very well off, is a contract lawyer and bank rolled him and set him up till he got on his feet and was able to market the stolen ideas and push it on to the gullible mass market. In addition he is a hypocrite as he sits on a board wanting all the brown people of the world that can't purchase Windows software, because they are so poor they don't even have a phone yet or running water in their homes, not to have children while he and his missus pop out 3 (which is more than replacement) of their own and they will consume more than most of sub-Saharan Africa in ecological resources just because they can buy it. But it seems too much of a 'miracle' for Bill to keep his trouser snake under control.

More nuclear energy is not the way to go. There is enough to deal with decommissioning the ones we have already. And it is the public which has to pay for it and deal with the outfall, economic and health wise. It is uneconomical and can only exist through corporate welfare. It is even more dangerous than coal. Catastrophically so. There already exists the clean technology to power our world. But it also needs us to have less consumption and to focus on needs, not wants and greeds. But that is bad for business profits under a capitalist system. Bill is a corporate man and his solutions are corporate solutions. Nuclear energy is a corporate wet dream. Even if it is thorium based not uranium. It is still deadly and dirty. Just for 500 years instead of 500,000.

He is just using the economic crisis and global warming to push the corporate agenda. But it is such an agenda that caused all of that in the first place. But Bill wont go there. He is a man with no ideas.

Go Magda! :flowers:

NSSM 200: aka the Kissinger Doctrine.

Gates is part of a small group of ridiculously rich white people funding the population control agenda:

Those trouser snakes are always causing problems.It's best to just hit them on the head with a golf club,and then stand back and watch them shrivel up and play dead. http://i111.photobucket.com/albums/n152/KLM_010/smilies/smilielol5.gif

It was interesting to note the assembly of TED attendees gave Billy Boy a standing O. Hmmmm... I have never been impressed by the man nor his methods nor the empire he has created. (on a side note, nor endeared to him by virtue of the hundreds of hours I have spent debugging his cruddy software). I find it appalling that members of TED would give a standing O to promote the most poisonous and disastrous technology ever conceived by man. We as members of living things would do the world a favor by developing low tech, sustainable technologies such as solar electric and solar thermal, wind, hydroelectric, geothermal, biomass, and tidal energy systems. These systems could be integrated into smart grids for balancing and load distribution. But by far, the greatest solutions to the energy problems are co-generation, reduction of use, and conservation. All these objectives could be attained with a "man on the moon" urgency of the 1960's. That requires true intelligence. That requires vision unclouded by greed. That accomplishment is possible with leadership from the bottom up, not the top down. That means Us, Not Billy Boy.

Oh, absolutely Erik! :tee: We already have the technology and the people with ideas. Billy Boy is bereft of real ideas. As are his groupies.

If tomorrow I invented a black box that produced 100 KW of clean, free electricity for 100 years, as soon as Bill Gates and his ilk get a hold of it, your electricity rates will surely continue to climb.

There. I am slowly overcoming the indoctrinations of my youth (thanks, Magda :))
