Bill Gates is buying up land, threatening farms, new book claims
Bill Gates is buying up huge swathes of land, threatening farms and investing in fake meats under the guise of saving the planet while actually inflating net worth and trying to seize a monopoly on a vegan future, new book claims
Penned by journalist Seamus Bruner, the work asserts Gates’ investments in fertilizers and plant-based meats are doing little to slow carbon emissions
It also claims the billionaire’s recent buying of American farmland is doing more for his bank account than the planet
Bill Gates’ recent buying of American farmland is doing more for his bank account than the planet, a new book claims.
Penned by bestselling journalist Seamus Bruner, the work also asserts the billionaire’s investments in fertilizers and plant-based meats are doing little to slow carbon emissions as he claims, and come at the expense of everyday Americans.
A section of the just-released book that hones ‘the war on farmers’ elaborates on these claims.
In it, Bruner writes how figures like Gates are monopolizing the nation’s food supply with their food- and farm-related purchases, paving the way for a takeover over the country’s food system as families like the Rockefellers have done in the past.
Citing the Microsoft founder’s recent investments in patented fertilizers, fake meat, and some 270,000 acres of American farmland, Bruner writes how Gates – an outspoken advocate for climate action – is supposedly looking out for himself.
Bill Gates’ recent buying of American farmland is doing more for his bank account than the planet, a new book that examines the influence of billionaires claims
The tech billionaire has quietly bought up 270,000 acres of farmland in 18 states – and 268,984 of multi-use land in 19 states in total, making him the biggest agricultural landowner in the US
‘The takeover of the food system, like so many other control schemes in this book, began with the Rockefellers and was advanced by Bill Gates,’ Bruner writes in his study of the influence billionaires have over Americans, titled Controligarchs.
‘Like most of their monopolies – from oil to software and eventually biotechnology – the takeover of food is all about controlling the intellectual property of food production through trademarks, copyrights, and patents,’ he continues.
He goes on to hone in on Gates’ connection to the Rockefellers via ‘the Green Revolution,’ a period of great increase in production of food grains in the first half of the 19th century.
Those advances, Bruner says, were only made possible by millions of dollars of Rockefeller-funded research in the 1940s, which at the time had been billed to help solve the crises of poverty and starvation in the wake of the Great Depression.
