How about knowing more about this subject?

In three episodes, the documentary series “The Bill Gates Code”, available on Netflix, shows the efforts of the Microsoft founder in find solutions to serious problems that still afflict humanity: the lack of basic sanitation, tropical diseases, and the creation of cheap and safe sources of energy.

Many people see the billionaire with reservations. Bill Gates is criticized for being a globalist, for creating a monopoly within the tech industry, undermining free competition, and even for friendship with financier Jeffrey Epstein, who died in prison before being tried for child sex trafficking. In his defense, Gates stated that the meetings were intended to raise funds for his Foundation.

With due reservations, this episode of Quarantine Cult will talk about something else. For several years now, Bill Gates has sponsored a program called Terra Power, which tries to create safer nuclear plants that produce only a fraction of the toxic waste of traditional ones. The importance of this research became even greater with the War in Ukraine, when the dependence of European countries on Russian oil and natural gas became evident.

To talk about the Terra Power project and nuclear energy, so demonized by environmentalists but with the potential to save the planet, we invite Artur Villela Ferreira, business administrator, researcher at the Center for Economic Studies at Infrastructure and Environmental Solutions at FGV and co-author of the book “Nem Negatismo Nem Apocalypse – Economics of the Environment: A Brazilian Perspective”, together with Gesner Oliveira.
