On his blog, Dr. Joseph Mercola raises the alarm about Bill Gates’s desire that “people’s behaviors should be changed to learn to like fake meat,” and that if they resist, real meat should be regulated. He writes (abridged):
- One of the key players in the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s agricultural agenda is the widespread adoption of synthetic meat
- Gates said he thinks rich countries should be eating all fake meat and that “you can sort of change the [behavior of] people or use regulation to totally shift the demand”
- Gates is either personally invested in, or invested in via Breakthrough Energy Ventures, the companies he actively promotes, including Beyond Meats, Impossible Foods and Memphis Meats
- Bill Gates owns more farmland in the U.S. than any other private farmer, having purchased a total of 242,000 acres — much of it considered some of the richest soil in the U.S. — in the past few years
- Ultimately, social justice advocate Vandana Shiva, Ph.D., notes, the Gates empire “will own everything”
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the largest charitable foundation in the world,1 has an agricultural agenda that supports agrochemicals, patented seeds, fake meat and corporate control — interests that undermine regenerative, sustainable, small-scale farming. One of the key players in this agenda is the widespread adoption of synthetic meat.
Imitation meat company Impossible Foods was co-funded by Google, Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates,2 and Gates has made it clear that he believes switching to synthetic beef is the solution to reducing methane emissions that come from animals raised on concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs).3
The strong recommendation to replace beef with fake meat is made in Gates’ book “How to Avoid a Climate Disaster: The Solutions We Have and the Breakthroughs We Need,” which was released in February 2021.4 In an interview with MIT Technology Review, he goes so far as to say that people’s behaviors should be changed to learn to like fake meat and, if that doesn’t work, regulations could do the trick.5
