Bill Gates has been pushing for years to raise awareness of climate change initiatives, and recently said that people on Earth must change almost everything they do to save the planet.
Bill Gates & Elon Musk
But a U.S. organization focused on promoting infrastructure development recently questioned Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates’ double standard on climate change, and why he himself hasn’t stopped flying on private jets after the billionaire called for doing “almost everything” to combat climate change. The group says in the video, “Use #BeyondHypocrisy (more than hypocrisy) to call out the worst offenders.”
Bill Gates has said that taking private jets does not make him part of the problem because he has invested billions of dollars in the fight against climate change.
Tesla and Twitter CEO Elon Musk responded by saying that if the former Microsoft leader really wanted to help the climate, giving up his massive short position in Tesla would be “a step in the right direction.
Elon Musk has long questioned Bill Gates’ shorting of Tesla, tweeting last May that “Bill Gates is shorting Tesla for billions of dollars while claiming to help solve the global warming problem. I have some trust issues with Bill Gates. “Bill Gates responded in an interview last June that he has invested more in climate change than Elon Musk or anyone else, and that the shorting didn’t hurt Elon Musk.
There has been some contention between Bill Gates and Elon Musk over the past few years. Bill Gates has questioned the validity of some Tesla products, while Elon Musk has been critical of Bill Gates for taking short positions against Tesla, and most recently Bill Gates called Elon Musk’s goal of bringing life to Mars practically pointless, saying, “Going to Mars is actually expensive, you can buy a measles vaccine for $1,000 and save lives, so that gives you something to realize: don’t go to Mars. .”
