"On the personal front, I am doing a lot more," Gates wrote. "I am driving electric cars. I have solar panels at my house. I eat synthetic meat (some of the time!). I buy green aviation fuel. I pay for direct air capture by Climeworks. I help finance electric heat pumps in low cost housing to replace natural gas."

Well good for him.
Bill has lost his mind.

Yeah, I like to be part of the solution and not part of the problem. /drives off in his Prius
(slightly obscure reference)
A wealthy idiot. And stupid as well.
No he won’t but it sounds good to those who want to believe it..
Bill has lots of money to do whatever he wants to do......if he’s trying to set an example he can stop right there.
He’s obsessed with going green....and talking about himself alot.
C’mon, Gates. Just blow your brains out to fight climate change and spare us random tactics from your narcissistic personality disorders handbook.
And him and his family will totally take his vaccines too. /s
Climeworks is partnered with Audi they have taken CO2 from the air added water split via electrolysis into hydrogen and turned it diesel , petrol and jet fuel fascinating technology. The idea is to use wind or solar power that going to waste if is generated in a period of low demand and store that excess as hydrocarbons. The same tech could also be used to take nuclear power and turn it into diesel. They report a 70% efficiency from power to fuel quite high. Petrol has 34.4 kWh per US gallon at it’s HHV nuclear power in countries that don’t let environmentalism get in the way can be had at a levelled cost of electricity of 1.5 cents per kWh using government capital and just under double that for private capital. 3 cents at 70% efficiency is just under a $1.50 in energy costs. Even granting equal costs in capital repayment, and O&M for the power to fuel module that’s only $3 bucks a gallon for unlimited nuclear powerenter fuel from thin air. The amounts of recoverable uranium is hundreds of years worth at under $200 lb yellowcake , seawater uranium recovery added thousands of years of resources the Japanese are.nearing commercialization of seawater recovery at $250 lb or less they lack domestic uranium it makes sense for them to mine the oceans right off the island’s shore.
He can eat all the garbage he wants.
I will not follow suit.
More meat for the rest of us.
What ever happened to thermodynamic heat generators?

I remember seeing a Warner Brothers cartoon where an antagonist of Bugs Bunny is taken in by Bugs, and to show his embarrassment and realization that he had been scammed, his head turned into a giant lollypop, with the word “Sucker” printed on the outside rapper. This image immediately came to mind when I read Gates promised means of combating “Climate Change”. SUCKER! Hahahahah!
