Am American philanthropist Billionaire popularly known as Bill Gates has urged all Americans and residents in other “rich countries” Tuesday to switch to “100% synthetic beef” to combat global warming and climate change in the years ahead.
“Impossible and Beyond have a road map, a quality road map and a cost road map, that makes them totally competitive,” Gates said, referencing popular plant-based meat corporations. “As for scale today, they don’t represent 1% of the meat in the world, but they’re on their way.”

“Eventually, that green premium is modest enough that you can sort of change the [behavior of] people or use regulation to totally shift the demand,” Gates said. “So for meat in the middle-income-and-above countries, I do think it’s possible.”
“I do think all rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef,” concluded the Microsoft founder. “You can get used to the taste difference, and the claim is they’re going to make it taste even better over time.”
