‘The Planet Is Going to Be Fine’: Bill Gates

Climate change proponent Bill Gates said during an event that “the planet is going to be fine.”

“There’s a lot of climate exaggeration,” he said. “The climate is not the end of the planet. So the planet is going to be fine.”

He did not cite any examples of “exaggeration.”

At a New York Times event days later, Gates said, “There are effects on humanity, the planet less so,” noting that “no temperate country is going to become uninhabitable.”

“It’s pretty clear we’re not going to go to extreme scenarios,” Gates explained. “Emissions will peak and then start to go down. They won’t go down as fast as we want them to and so the temperature will continue to rise and once the temperature has risen it doesn’t go down very quickly, unless you do massive carbon removal.”

Gates further stated that climate change policies cannot be implemented through “brute force.”

“Without innovation, it’s unlikely, particularly in middle-income countries, that the brute force approach will be successful.”

In 2020, Gates warned that climate change may lead to human disaster, saying, “As awful as this pandemic is, climate change could be worse,” calling for leaders to “accelerate” climate efforts.

Reporting from The Epoch Times:

It comes as a Nobel Prize laureate, John Clauser, recently challenged climate models and said researchers have ignored a key variable. He and about 1,600 other researchers signed a pledge declaring there is no "climate emergency" and said that Earth's history shows there has been a constantly changing climate—with or without human activity.


"Misguided climate science has metastasized into massive shock-journalistic pseudoscience. In turn, the pseudoscience has become a scapegoat for a wide variety of other unrelated ills," it added. "It has been promoted and extended by similarly misguided business marketing agents, politicians, journalists, government agencies, and environmentalists. In my opinion, there is no real climate crisis."

"There is, however, a very real problem with providing a decent standard of living to the world’s large population and an associated energy crisis. The latter is being unnecessarily exacerbated by what, in my opinion, is incorrect climate science."
