Bill Gates is not a supporter of space exploration and building colonies on the Moon or Mars. He believes that instead of wasting time and money making plans for manned flights to foreign planets, we should rather focus on Earth and fight to save it from the global cataclysm that awaits mankind due to global warming.
The founder of the world’s largest Sway charity foundation for The New York Times struck again against Elon Musk and his plans to send people to the Red Planet and colonize it. Gates believes that Musk’s billions of dollars he is devoting to building the most powerful space transportation system in human history and other space-related technologies would be spent on developing innovative ecological projects, developing new vaccines, and programs to reduce poverty and hunger in the world.
At the same time, Gates praised Elon Musk for the development of Tesla. In his opinion, it contributed to the limitation of the use of fossil fuels and thus the reduction of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere. The billionaire even cites Musk’s efforts “as one of the greatest contributions to climate protection that anyone has ever made.”
Microsoft’s co-founder added that thinking of Mars as a new home for humanity, rather than addressing the issue of climate change on Earth, is a missed opportunity to save our civilization. Really the fight for Mother Nature is much simpler than turning Mars into a life-giving second Earth. The former can be obtained in a few years, and the latter for hundreds, if not thousands.
Gates emphasized that his latest book aims to raise people’s awareness of the topic of ecology. In it, he tries to encourage ordinary people to make their lives more environmentally friendly, for example by giving up meat. Meanwhile, he is asking corporations to invest in new technologies that will eliminate fossil fuels for the production of steel and cement.
Elon Musk said a while ago that saving our planet from climate change makes sense and that’s why he launched a $ 100 million project to develop a technology to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. At the same time, he emphasized that he will not give up sending people to the Moon and Mars, because in addition to saving Mother Nature, it is also necessary to protect humanity in the event of a global cataclysm that will sooner or later come from the depths of space in the form of a cosmic rock impact.
