Bill Gates is really becoming the puppet master behind America’s new “green” farming movement.
Currently, he is one of the largest private owners of U.S. farmland.

Bill Gates, the Microsoft co-founder and philanthropist, owns 242,000 acres of farmland in the United States, making him the largest owner of private farmland, a study found by The Land Survey.
According to The Land Survey, Gates, whose net worth of almost $121 billion makes him the fourth-richest person in the world, and his wife, Melinda Gates, possess an extensive portfolio of farmland spanning 18 states.
The study said the largest holdings of the Gates family are in Louisiana (69,071 acres), Arkansas (47,927 acres), and Nebraska (20,588 acres).
According to The Land Study, their farmland is owned both directly and through Cascade Investment, a firm operated by Gates to manage his investments.
Which begs the question: what the heck is he up to?
Well, Gates actually claimed in a recent interview that he claims that natural meat produces too much waste and that rich countries should consume 100 percent synthetic beef.
“So no, I don’t think synthetic meat will be eaten by the poorest 80 countries,” he said. “All rich countries, I guess, should switch to 100% synthetic beef. You should get used to the change in flavor, and the argument is that, with time, they can make it taste even better.
Eventually, the green premium is modest enough that you can change people or use laws to change demand entirely. So I do think it’s possible for meat in middle-income-and-above-countries. But it’s one of those where, wow, every year you have to keep track of it and see, and the politics [are challenging].
There are all these bills that say, essentially, it has to be called lab garbage to be sold. They don’t want the beef name to be used by us.
Earlier in the interview, Bill Gates said that because cows emit methane, a greenhouse gas, synthetic proteins would be needed for beef.
“It’s really complicated in terms of livestock. There are all the stuff where they feed various foods to them, such as this one compound that gives you a reduction of 20 percent [in methane emissions]. Unfortunately, however, those bacteria [that generate methane in their digestive system] are a required part of breaking down the grass. And so, I don’t know if there’s going to be any natural approach. I’m afraid that for at least the beef thing, synthetic [protein alternatives such as plant-based burgers] will be needed,’ he said.
Maybe he has a good point about the environment, huh?
