Gates Foundation Denies Global Warming and Strives for Global Domination

Summary: New information about the agenda of the Gates Foundation and negative response from Africa

A former Microsoft employee has gotten in touch in order to share with us some valuable information. He wrote to me: “I used to work at Microsoft – as a permatemp – in the years before Bill discovered the Internet. I was rudely invited to leave after filing a patent on an independent invention and refusing to give it to Microsoft.

“I have to say that the greatest crime of the Gates is to deny global warming. I wrote about that in a local Seattle newspaper. The denial by the Foundation will cause incalculable suffering.”

“I have to say that the greatest crime of the Gates is to deny global warming.”
      –Former Microsoft employee
We have checked to verify this and indeed, co-chairman of the Gates Foundation said about Global Warming: “The fact of the matter is we don’t think about it.”

“I wanted to pass along a great blog that you might find of interest,” said this informant, linking to the site of professor Steve Easterbrook. He added: “Right now the greatest issue of all time is global warming. The chances that humans will meet extinction is non-zero. And denial by world leaders of any capacity is sinful. Thanks for all that you do.”

My response to him was that “I am very concerned about what Rockefeller and Gates are up to because it seems somewhat nationalist and selfish. Monsanto is one example…”

“The Monsanto tie in is so very interesting,” added our informant, further stating that “Global warming is ferociously disruptive to it all. A real test of Gates’ hubris. Tragedy as entertainment, possibly. And I am sure you know of the current discussion and links on GatesKeepers blog.”

The latest pick from the GatesKeepers blog comes from the “Food crisis and the global land grab” Web site, which states:

The fervour with which foreign commercial interests are forcing their agricultural ’solutions’ on the African continent represents nothing more than an established endeavour to protect profits and access to resources, writes Joan Baxter. For all that they are dressed up as ‘help’ and ‘knowledge’, these ostensible solutions are about one thing: Money. So long as powerful initiatives like the Green Revolution and agribusinesses are able to trample on the continent’s sovereignty, Baxter argues, Africa’s land, traditional knowledge, biodiversity, seeds and crop varieties will remain in liquidation.

[...]

And just to make sure there’s absolutely nothing impeding or taming the tidal wave of investment, the World Bank and the US are busy helping African governments ‘harmonise’ laws to privatise land and open the doors for the patenting of crop and tree varieties and for genetically modified (GM) organisms crops.[i]

The above article speaks about “Green Revolution”, which is a euphemism created by monopolies that are in turn backed by Gates and Rockefeller. And yes, those two families are officially a pair now — a subject that we addressed a few months back. In relation to the article above, GatesKeepers remarks:

AGRA is run by several people with close ties to the biotech monster, Monsanto, and just like Green Revolution Number One, it recommends ‘modern’ technological solutions such as imported fertilizers and purchased seeds.

It is all about creating a dependency on rich people in the West.

We are occasionally being asked questions like, “if it’s true, why does the press not cover this?”

Well, it all goes back to ownership of the mainstream press. Bill Gates invests hundreds of millions of dollars (maybe billions by now) in the press. This can certainly keep the reporting “under control”. See what the Los Angeles Times achieved when it looked deeper inside the Gates Foundation.

Earlier this month we wrote about the Comcast/NBC kerkuffle [1, 2] and watch what Microsoft is doing with NBC right now:

MSN Local Edition has struck content deals with NBC Local Media and Hearst Television.

Microsoft says the partnerships with NBC Local Media and Hearst Television will give MSN around 3,000 news video clips a week across 36 local media markets. The new video content will be available in January 2010.

So Microsoft has influence not only in NBC but in Hearst Television as well. Will these channels ever dare to expose the darker sides of Mr. Gates?

“Gates has created a huge blood-buying operation that only cares about money, not about people.”

AIDS organisation manager, December 2009 (New York Times)

    “Nationalist and selfish?”

    I agree with much of the above article, but since when is Microsoft already its own nation?

    Microsoft has been buoyed on the tide of Anti-Americanism, to be sure, brought in by the second Bush administration. And it is a nasty political movement in its own right, but it is far from being its own nation. The introduction of Microsoft products into any country bring with it a reduced reduced work capacity, a burden that can push many borderline economic cases over the brink. Parasites need a host and so as a nation, it could not survive on its own

    rantman Reply:

    Microsoft is not a nation in the traditional sense. But in the digital world, and operating system is very much a form of government. And most of the world has pledged allegiance to that flag. Techno-peasants would be wise to take great care in extending their power.

    Roy Schestowitz Reply:

    Judge Thomas Penfield Jackson said about Bill Gates: “I think he has a Napoleonic concept of himself and his company, an arrogance that derives from power and unalloyed success, with no leavening hard experience, no reverses.”

    Nations need to wake up.

    your_friend Reply:

    Microsoft pretends to be a US company when it wishes to shield itself from justice or purchase laws. It pretends to be a multinational when courting foreign powers. It is neither. Microsoft represtented the interests of it’s largest share holder, Bill Gates, who ran the place like a personal kingdom. Public investors were mostly given the shaft over Microsoft’s long history of sub par dividends just as customers were perpetually given sub par software. If Mr. Gates is not still the largest share holder, some other suckers must now be in charge of the collapsing company.

    Global warming is a national issue. It is in the short term economic interest of the US and other western nations to ignore global warming. Oil and coal burning in the western world are the leading causes. The increasing costs of climate disruption will soon outweigh the benefits, if they have not already, but the major polluters themselves may never have a financial incentive to stop polluting. These companies pretend to represent the interests of the nations they claim as their home to shield themselves from effective regulation required to prevent global warming catastrophe.

    The Gates Foundation is part of the problem. When the Gates foundation says it does not think about global warming, they mean they will continue to invest in shoddy African oil exploration, or tobacco. This is not something that people who care about developing nations should do, but the Gates Foundation is not really a charity. It is a tax dodge and PR cover for the business of few very wealthy US citizens.

  2. IP Kat is Lobbying Heavily for the UPC, Courtesy of Team UPC

    When does an IP (or patent) blog become little more than an aggregation of interest groups and self-serving patent law firms, whose agenda overlaps that of Team Battistelli?

  7. Cementing Autocracy: The European Patent Office Against Democracy, Against Media, and Against the Rule of Law

    The European Patent Office (EPO) actively undermines democracy in Europe, it undermines the freedom of the press (by paying it for puff pieces), and it undermines the rule of law by giving one single tyrant total power in Eponia and immunity from outside Eponia (even when he breaks his own rules)

  11. Beware the Patent Law Firms Insinuating That Software Patents Are Back Because of McRO

    By repeatedly claiming (and then generalising) that CAFC accepted a software patent the patent microcosm (meta-industry) hopes to convince us that we should continue to pursue software patents in the US, i.e. pay them a lot more money for something of little/no value

    Without even consulting the British public or the European public (both of whom would be severely harmed by the UPC), the flag bearers of the UPC continue to bamboozle and then pressure politicians, public servants and nontechnical representatives
