BILL GATES Slams Unreliable Wind & Solar: ‘Let’s Quit Jerking Around With Renewables & Batteries’

BILL GATES, not afraid to break ranks with the cult of climate groupthink, calling out the ruinous obsession with fashionable UNreliables – wind and solar ‘power’.

“Do you guys on Wall Street have something in your desks that makes steel? Where is fertilizer, cement, plastic going to come from? Do planes fly through the sky because of some number you put in a spreadsheet?”


Bill says it’s time to stop jerking around with wind & solar.

When the world’s richest entrepreneur says wind and solar will never work, it’s probably time to listen.

Bill Gates made a fortune applying common sense to the untapped market of home computing. The meme has it that IBM’s CEO believed there was only a market for five computers in the entire world. Gates thought otherwise. Building a better system than any of his rivals and shrewdly working the marketplace, resulted in hundreds of millions hooked on PCs, Windows and Office. This is a man that knows a thing or two about systems and a lot about what it takes to satisfy the market.

For almost a century, electricity generation and distribution were treated as a tightly integrated system: it was designed and built as one, and is meant to operate as designed. However, the chaotic delivery of wind…

    Great to see one of the most influential people in the world finally put the boots to The Big Lie about wind, solar and batteries! Mext thing we know an honest discussion about climate change might break out. Maybe even the coming impact of the Eddy Grand Solar Minimum!

      Renewables will make up 80% of energy use in the US by 2050. Whether you like it or not or are even alive.

      The only question is who will control the market: the Chinese?

        Unlikely since its under 10% now if you do not include hydro, Where I live electricity prices have doubled since going to 12% wind 1%solar, and jobs are disappearing since electricity costs are driving away business. Any stories about renewable being cost effective are intentionally misleading, its not even close. But the renewable contracts to friends and families of politicians are well received by them

        Wind and solar are dead without subsidies for both hardware and feed-in. Scrap the lot ! Now.

    The man has a sense and this is only surface talk.

    we need a depression. then we’ll have all the energy we need. see my letter to the editor milwauke journal sentintenal archives oct 8 74. most of our energy is now used to make dumb products like the ones gates regrets we don’t have the energy for like plastic bottles. i think stopping car production would save a lot of energy.
