Boris Johnson and Bill Gates working together

Boris Johnson and Bill Gates working together

The UK government is launching a £400m investment package alongside Bill Gates to boost the development of new green technologies. Boris Johnson said the deal would help power a “green industrial revolution” and develop emerging technologies that were currently too expensive to be commercially successful but were essential to hitting the government’s climate goals.

“I think these are all technologies that have massive potential but are currently underinvested in, by comparison with some others,” Johnson said.

“We will only achieve our ambitious climate goals if we rapidly scale up new technologies in areas like green hydrogen and sustainable aviation fuels – technologies that seemed impossible just a few years ago.”

The prime minister said the partnership would help develop UK technology related to carbon capture and storage, long-term battery life, jet zero (zero-carbon aviation) and green hydrogen technology.

The UK has already pledged at least £200m to the development of so called green technologies. Gates announced that he would match the commitment via a coalition of private investors called Energy Catalyst. It's just another small example of how billionaires interweave themselves within governments to gain influence. The goals of UN Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development are terrifying, to say the least.
