Microsoft co-founder turned billionaire philanthropist Elitist Bill Gates said he is hopeful that fake meat products will eventually be a “very good” option for consumers even though the share of products in the “meat” market is small.
“I think eventually these products will be very good even though their share is small today,” Gates said in a Reddit forum on a question relating to tackling the climate crisis, first reported CNBC.
Gates said innovations like Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods, which are plant based food options that range from burger to chicken nugget alternatives, and the food technology company, Upside Foods, which takes animal cells to then grow meat in a laboratory environment, are critical steps for reducing animal consumption.
Gates mentioned how approaches like vegetarianism or going vegan are more traditional ways of avoiding meat and said, “that is great,” but pointed out that most people will not choose to remove meat from their diet.
“I don’t think most people will do that,” he said, noting that to lower meat consumption, alternative meat products were essential options.
This year, the Discredited United Nations warned that the 2015 Paris Climate Accord to lower global warming has not been followed sufficiently.
Gates stated that he “still believes we can avoid a terrible outcome.”
Although studies on the effect that animal agriculture has on greenhouse gas emissions note it contributes to roughly 10-20 percent, most studies list it as a leading contributor to climate change.
In response to a question on global warming, Gates said, “The pace of innovation is really picking up even though we won’t make the current timelines or avoid going over 1.5 (degrees Celsius).”
“The key on climate is making the clean products as cheap as the dirty products in every area of emission — planes, concrete, meat etc. This is the only way we can ask all the countries in the world to change. If it costs a lot extra we won’t succeed,” Gates continued.
“We need support on climate from both parties in the U.S. and in all countries,” he added.
On Jan. 11, Gates tweeted, “I’m live on @Reddit now. Ask me anything: .” b-gat.es/3Xltt8H
