    Plants and trees depend on carbon dioxide. They CONSUME CO2 and release O2, oxygen. If global warming is due to increased CO2 levels that would mean that our forests are being overwhelmed by CO2 levels. This is preposterous! Last I researched this subject, we breathe about 20% oxygen and 80% nitrogen. Carbon dioxide, along with other inert and noble gases are minuscule percentages. And in my scientific opinion, these minuscule carbon dioxide percentages, given that large portions of our land masses are covered by forests that are consuming CO2, are not enough to affect climate change.

    Bill Gates as President would be a nightmare. His phoney tax-exempt charity Foundation was used to help build foreign cheap labour in other countries i.e. Africa to compete with American workers. Gates Foundation is monetarily invested and supports GMOs and other types of human eliminating projects under his tax-exempt charities and his bgC3 LLC think tank. Hello!

    The name is an acronym for Bill Gates Catalyst 3, with the appended number pointing to a third endeavor beyond Microsoft and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.[3]
    According to the company's federal trademark registration, it is a think-tank, covering:
    Scientific and technological services.
    Industrial analysis and research.
    Design and development of computer hardware and software to combat poverty.
    The company has been described as a cross between a think tank, incubator and venture capital firm. bgC3 is managed by Larry Cohen, a former Microsoft executive, who serves as its managing partner.

    Why is there so much misinformation about this? CO2 is good for the planet. How good? The optimum level for plant growth is around 1200 PPM, and we're at around 400 PPM currently. The planet has gone up to 2000 PPM and it didn't explode did it?

    Gorlov turbines placed in rivers can harvest energy from the flow of water the full length of the rivers producing more energy than a dam.the energy would produced 24 hr a day no thermal polution no co2! go vegan lower co2!

    We need to move away from fossil fuel to clean energy (we been had the technology) and we need to move away from meat. If we plant more food and trees we will put out less co2 and more oxygen. But the 99% are just as greedy as the 1% because we aren't even willing to change our lifestyle for the benefit of the world so the easy way is to kill us off because we are dead weight. It's quite morbid but it's the truth.

    I don't really understand all the hoopla of the people here in the comments section saying that Bill Gates wants to kills us, hold our breaths, live like peasants etc etc. Are you guys for real?

  22. Dander Spat

    February 10, 2017 at 2:13 am

    I think I get it, Bill wants us to live like peasants, riding bicycles, till we get the temperatures to where he wants it.
    If it drops too far, could we give more taxes to get the temperatures back up or should we just go ahead and die to help out.
    We need rich liberals to help us to know what to do. Thanks

    4:23 'Probably one of these numbers is going to have to get pretty near to zero' with that snarky "sophisticated" wink for the hardcore narcissists and the laughter following… the most obnoxious thing i've heard in a while. Makes me sick! 10-15% population cut sounds like underestimated soft numbers in this Zero agenda (corporate elite driven). CO(2) = P x S x E x C appears like a wordplay to me. Cop Sec? Cop Sector, powered by the global "police state" dream?

    12:42 Some casual Manhattan Project mention? Yeah, like you didn't experiment enough with the 'destroyer of worlds' technology that brought the world to it's knees. 25:09 AIDS mistake, care to tell more? Lab viruses oops gone spread and forced vaccines?

    Innovation, great great GREAT. The usual (sugar-coated) business juice talk, not how humans talk. Average honest people aren't selling some One World agenda with cute power words of the latest trend.
    Bill has hard eyes, i'm not feeling empathy on those nor human soul connection.

    Anybody is that defends this guy about what he said around 4:31, is a total sheep. IF YOU ARE DEFENDING WHAT HE SAID ABOUT POPULATION REDUCTION, you are also in the same boat as bill is in.

    Mind you I don't know hardly anything about Traveling Wave Reactors but the idea of packing a reactor with 60 years of fuel disturbs me. I did a quick Google search to find out if it is even possible to shut down a TWR reaction once it has been started and I couldn't find anything. I want something I can turn off if necessary. Personally I am leaning much more towards Thorium specifically LFTR (Lifter Reactors).

    Bill has the wealth of the bottom 120 million US residents. He's like a self/crowd funding machine. Trump might think this is hooey, but 90% of the rest of the world believes we need action to mitigate further climate change NOW!

    The only way is Atomic physics and Nuclear physics
    we need many physicist working on this problem. E=mc^2
    where m is mass
    mass may be of any element may be Uranium, coal or even rocks and stone they contain energy
    I hope we come to know how to extract energy from most abundant material and in the safe manner very soon.

    If we want to reduce humanity's CO2 output to 0, we're all going to need to hold our breaths. I'm going to start now, anyone want to join in?

    PS: The reason we keep going on about the GAS. Its funny. But literally – no, in 100yr we won't need it, nor is it all that necessary for specific needs. (Unlike whale oil and pork fat, these ARE needed if you want your carbonaceous humanoid shell, but EMH's and XML files are fine, I don't care, you're all welcome to start.)
