    Does anyone know how old Bezos is? Regardless, I am 24 y.o and strangely attracted to this man. His level of intelligence such a turn-on.

    It's surprising how weak his argument is here. First of all energy use has been increasing with global population and we are likely to reach our population cap in less than 50 years and there is no evidence that power usage will continue to grow after that. Technology is constantly being invented that reduces power usage, for example we are now using 5% the electricity for lighting that we used just 20 years ago. Also the efficiency of solar panels has been increasing steadily for 50+ years and at the current rate of improvement electricity would cost less than $0.0001 per kw/h 200 years from now.
    Just a totally mindless comment, how is this guy the richest man in the world?
    Now just after this he says we use 11,000 watts of energy. That again is just stupid. The only way you would get that number if it is even accurate is to combine the total usage of electicity and divide by the population. Does that mean if a US owned aluminum smelter is using 10MW of electricity to smelt aluminum which it sells overseas that I am using a portion of that energy? No. I average probably 300W of energy usage. My government uses maybe 100w tops average in providing services to me. Just nonsense coming out of this guys mouth.

    So many brain-deads in here advocating slavery... I can't believe you people are really this stupid, so let me spell it out for you: THERE ARE NO MAGICAL UNLIMITED WELL-PAYING JOBS. A HUGE portion of jobs are low-wage, and always will be. It is not possible for everyone to have a good job at the same time. It's IMPOSSIBLE, BECAUSE THERE ARE NOT THAT MANY SLOTS AVAILABLE. Someone has to end up on the bottom. Understand?

    Anyone who thinks the earth is small has never driven across Texas. If he thinks he can build homes in outer space why doesn't he practice by making homes underwater or in Antarctica? Seriously, I think some of these self absorbed people just romanticize the idea of "living in outer space". It's a stupid idea if you can't even clean up the air on earth.

    Here's an individual who cannot even run a good company (Amazon). I had a lot of packages sent to me and I spent a lot of time on the internet trying to sort out messes within that company. I have now begun to pay a little more and get better service. Why ? Because when you spend a lot of your time on the phone trying to fix his problems, it is not only costly financially. It becomes a big cost and a complete waste of time doing business there.
    Who is he to even to criticize anyone when he cannot even get his own act together. He cannot even run a company smoothly and yet he wants to offer the world advice. Jeff spend more time focussing on your own internal problems before you criticize others. Remember Al Capone looked successful to some others as well. What a hypocrite ! Jeff never forget the other large retailers who neglected the most important part, the customer who eventually had to close down their doors because they thought they were smarter as well. The customer is the one who keeps your doors open. They can also shut them down very fast.

      There is a warehouse around the corner from my neighborhood on Fallbrook in Houston as well, and I have a client who's husband works there. Watch the New York Times Expose on Jeff Bezos and you'll see what I mean. Of course things change once the cats out the bag and you have to perform tours to save face, but plenty of people know where his profit margin comes from (beside not have much real estate) Which seems to be changing. Watch the expose hint: "Some things won't fly in America".

      Slave driver? There is a warehouse in my city - and they offer full benefits for part time workers and good pay. (They recently advertised $17/hour). Yes, the job is hard - but so is roofing homes in August or installing AC units in crawlspaces. While I'm sure a warehouse job has it has its drawbacks, I'm also sure many are benefiting from it.

    Jeff Bezos supports white genocide in South Africa - this is clear by how the Washington Post, his mouthpiece, are fighting against Trump's recognition of it. All Jeff cares about, is getting into South Africa to fight Alibaba: if this means keeping quiet about the mass murder of white farmers - or even LYING about it in the press, the he is totally cool with it. As much as he is prepared to stand up for Israel - so should he do for a small European minority who are trapped in Africa.

If youre an amazon picker and would like a better opportunity i work for a commercial transportation company that is always short staffed, 3 weeks of training to get your CDL then you will make at least $50,000 a year, I make closer to $75,000 with the hours I put in. Depends what you're willing to put up with. Message me if you're interested.
