Bill Gates interview: How the world will change by 2030

  • Published on Jan 22, 2015
  • The Verge sat down with Bill Gates to talk about his ambitious vision for improving the lives of the poor through technology. It just so happens that The Verge exists to explore that kind of change - which is why Bill Gates will be The Verge’s first ever guest editor in February.

    "GMO have been far better accepted in the US (than anywhere else in the world)" until now. Monsanto's GMO seeds are designed to not react to being sprayed heavily with Roundup (Glyphosate). The World Health Organization has gone over the head of the FDA in recognizing Monsanto's well kept secret that it causes cancer in humans by slowly killing much of our microbiome which is the source of our immune system. The major lawsuits have already begun. It's unlikely that Gates eats GMO foods.

    Pushing vaccines is part of the agenda... Taking away your choice to take it or not... Making huge money with the absolute essentially bad stuff in the vaccines.

    Agenda 2030 is agreed upon by 187 countries and by George Bush and Barack Obama, who addressed the UN directly. In the next five years every institution of society will be directed to these goals and persons that try to sabotage the environment, standard of living and practice elitism will be treated as "outliers". A social behavior score will minimize the opportunities of criminals and the selfish. The elimination of destructive fossil fuel use will be reversed by carbon tax and prohibition by government. This WILL happen on schedule and law enforcement and military will assist. Every country impacts every other country.

    better seeds from monsanto bayer? mr Gates..

    • frederic rike
      frederic rike 25 days ago

      Interestingly, Bayer can't legally sell GMO seeds in the EU. That is one of the specific places the UK has felt they were not listened to in EU Coucil meetings. I see all the potential benefits, but am also very aware of the on generation nature of these Monsanto Bayer products- You buy seeds at a higher pric than ever before, you plant them they grow, you harvest them, and unlike evert thing you have ever harvested before, you get no viable seed s for next seasons crops. So you get to blow out a large chunk of your early season capitol to buy new seeds- every year there after. Not only makes Monsanto Bayer huge bucks but helps insulate their product from good old capitalist competition with other seed products. They have also been pretty vague about what will happen when M- B's patents run out- I expect they may just unlock those seeds, if they cannot buy longer patent protection by additional patents of product (changed), to inhibit generics from benefiting. BG says the farmers need a place to get financing; they have such a place- called the Commodities Market, out of Chicago. The market itself has had a bigger say in the price of corn, wheat, cotton, etc for years than the growers. You can't even break even if you are very lucky and avoid doing biz with the CM's banks- if they haven't seen your raggedy a$$ for a couple of years they will double the interest cost of a loan. Gates is usually better informed than he seems here- maybe he will revisit his comments re farming etc again.

    Re: 3:00 +- must educate farmers to keep productivity up. South Africa is mentioned as being an example of an region that will benefit. Problem I see currently is the movement of the black population to take the farm land from the whites by govt order. The "white"farmers are educated and experienced abt 400 yrs,generation after generation cumulative. The black uneducated or less educated wont be able to get up to speed to sustain itself . Just one error in farming decisions due to lack of the cumulative education and expertise will/can easily become catastrophic. I believe this has played out a few years back in Mozambique if I recall correctly ?

    So much fear, misunderstanding and hate in the comments. Not the majority but it sticks out as odd to my mind. Who in the hell does someone have to be when they are a good, generous, inspired person with the goal of saving and bettering lives? Imagine if he was building a dynasty as the super rich do and didn't care much about anyone else? He'd be "super rich average". These people putting him down and entirely blaming him for problems that are vast are so misinformed. I read some comments where I see it as spitting into his outreaching hand. Jealous, uninformed, un-loving people in comments need our compassion because if you can see it, you've had a better life, and can share of ourselves to make others whole.

    If the farmers are motivated by greed, that us a path leading to disaster, one way or another. If they are motivated to help themselves and others to have better food they can afford, and have the knowledge to do this there is a chance, but global warming is an obvious danger that MUST be dealt with by reducing drastically greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

    Why would you listen to a guy like this about anything; You've got a million people from the streets who have taken the red pill and know the truth about this life. And they will get no response from anyone. Have you ever dealt with the rich; they are not your friends. Their marketing used against you is how they got their money. They are brought up to see you as an object to take advantage of ; that is their only goal in life; they do not care about the same creatures they are exploiting. It would be much better to listen to someone in the trenches of life that is on our side tell us what we need. This person speaking is not one of us or in our tribe; he's in a tribe of his own.

Monsanto is ban in most countries because of the increase of cancer where it has been used,some countries have turned away seed corn from Monsanto by shipping because of the tests they have done on the seed,so don't pretend that people are not wise to your plan.

    He's a clever guy, but he's also totally ignoring that once a GMO makes it into the wild, you have no real control of what cross pollination can do to native crops. I am in no doubt that the final product of a GMO is in no way dangerous to humans, my concern is whether it's unhealthy to its surrounding environment.
    Edit: Windows/Office may have helped its users, but did it really help the software environment to have a monopoly like that?
