Bill Gates Proposes Carbon Taxes at World Economic Forum

Microsoft founder Bill Gates suggested an aggressive carbon tax while speaking at the World Economic Forum.

  • Tech CEO Bill Gates spoke at the World Economic Forum Wednesday and suggested carbon taxes, according to the video posted by The Gateway Pundit.
  • Gates suggested that if “rich countries” already have these policies and “middle-income countries” have to be forced to change to do their part.
  • The Microsoft founder admitted that some countries won’t succeed but that regardless the plan to offset carbon footprints needs to see some traction.
  • Gates has been linked to many of WEF’s efforts and has pledged money in partnership with the WEF to “equitably respond to future epidemics and pandemics,” according to MSN News.
  • Gates said that “The rich countries have to play a central role, both funding RND and having policies, in some cases carbon taxes will be used to drive the demand for these clean products.”
  • He continued, “Only by doing that in an aggressive way will the economic costs be brought down enough that we can turn to all the middle-income countries and say ‘OK, change your whole cement industry, change your whole steel industry.’”
  • “The number of companies working on these things is very exciting,” Gates proclaimed.
  • “Some of them will fail, a lot of them will fail,” but asserted “we only need a reasonable number, a few dozen of them to make it through and that’s what we have to accelerate.”
  • World Economic Forum founder Klaus Schwab has written extensively on the “Fourth Industrial Revolution” or something commonly called “The Great Reset.” 
  • The WEF’s website addresses “the great reset” and cites changes made as a result of COVID-19 as causing a serious increase in interest in their plan.
  • WEF’s website outlines a utopian-style future, slated to take place in 2030, where AI runs the household and the roads and technology is front and center, including in the human brain.
