In a functioning world, if someone suggested cutting down forests to save the world, they would be committed to a locked psychiatric ward and given whatever treatment they needed to alleviate their symptoms. But in the completely crazy world of 2023, such people are listened to – and enabled to put their plans into action, reminiscent of dark James Bond villains.
Do you think we just made up the story? I will have to disappoint you. The basis of this report is an article by the business magazine Forbes published in July 2023. Report24 has already reported that Bill Gates has said that he believes it is unscientific to plant trees that absorb CO2 from the environment. (See: Bill Gates makes climate U-turn: “No temperate country will become uninhabitable”). According to Gates, planting trees to combat the alleged climate crisis would be “complete nonsense”. Instead, CO2 must be filtered from the air using technological measures.
Obviously, this September 2023 statement is part of a larger business campaign through which Gates wants to enrich himself, even if he throws the world into chaos. But what could you read in Forbes a few months ago? Gates would bet (with his own money) that the company Kodama Systems could cut down and bury forests on a large scale. This will reduce CO2. The company Kodama Systems specializes in wood cutting machines. The company has developed 17-tonne, semi-autonomous timber harvesters that can cut trees even at night.
The Forbes article stated:
Yes, the traditional idea is to plant trees to suck carbon dioxide from the air and then sell the credits to companies, private jet owners and others who need or want to offset their emissions. But scientists say burying trees could also reduce global warming — especially when those trees would otherwise burn or rot, releasing their stored carbon into the air.
Especially in California, the multi-billionaire is being listened to. Because annual forest fires will release large amounts of CO2. Now they want to “thin” 70 million hectares of forest and harvest 1 billion tons of wood in the process. Then the wood should be buried. The loss caused by this activity of wasting wood instead of converting it into construction material should be compensated through tax credits (emission credits).
It would probably be a crime to describe Gates as an extremely dangerous, mentally ill maniac. Some of his critics do so anyway, for example on social media. This question should also be allowed in a functioning democracy. Because our planet has evolved over billions of years an ecosystem that balances itself. Excess CO2 is bound; If too low, it is re-released. How this happens and in what dimensions, “science” still does not have the slightest knowledge of it. What is absolutely ignored is the fact that more than 50,000 active volcanoes continuously release various gases into the atmosphere. The magnitude of metabolism occurring continuously in plants and microorganisms in the world’s oceans is also unknown.
A small firsthand look at what people know is possible from National Geographic’s article “The Carbon Cycle.” It also states that the Earth is a closed system in which the amount of CO2 always remains the same.
Forbes quotes Ning Zeng, a professor at the University of Maryland who specializes in “atmospheric science.” He owns a company in the area that does the following:
Carbon Lockdown has a contract with the city of Baltimore to take 5,000 tons of biomass and bury it near Potomac, Maryland. The company sells the carbon credits generated from this “burial” on Puro.earth (a platform created with the support of the Finnish government and became majority owned by Nasdaq in 2021) for $181 per indexed ton. Swedish investment company Kinnevik recently purchased 1,000 tonnes. “Nature-based technologies exist and are scalable,” says Mikaela Kramer, who oversees the procurement of carbon credits for Kinnevik. “You don’t have to wait for the next 10 years.”
Once again the plan to cut down forests has nothing to do with the CO2 balance, but with Bill Gates’ bank balance sheet. The only way the thing can be profitable is for every ton of wood that is thoughtlessly destroyed, with tax money flowing into Bill Gates’ accounts. There is probably no country in the world where destruction of forests is considered positive and sensible. Many centuries ago there were countries whose forests were completely destroyed – during the time of the Roman Empire there was a huge hunger for wood for military and civil construction projects. According to historians, the background to deforestation in the Mediterranean region can be found here. Many countries are still suffering from this madness even after 2,000 years. And even then, people always believed that they had to radically clear the land – for example, to create arable and pasture land.
By the way, left-leaning Wikipedia still says the same:
Along with burning fossil fuels, deforestation is also a major cause of human-caused global warming.
Millions in donations would probably have to flow from Mr. Gates to “correct” the texts there and deforestation would suddenly be seen as a blessing for the planet.
In addition to the company Kodama Systems, another company is looking to make billions by destroying the environment in Gates’s wake: Yale Carbon Containment Lab. They want to create “underground safes” in which wood can be stored. This will ensure that it will not rot and release CO2 into the atmosphere.
Other potential beneficiaries include Bill Gates-founded Breakthrough Energy Ventures, Congruent Ventures and Frontier Climate. In addition to Gates, Stripe, Alphabet, Shopify, Meta, and McKinsey also invest in these so-called “world saving companies.”
As an alternative to the logging madness, Gates is investing in Climeworks, a company that uses technological means to filter CO2 from the air and is said to be 1,000 times more effective than forests. Logically, Bill Gates doesn’t need forests anymore.
