Bill Gates attends another climate summit for Africa to market his vaccines and seeds


by Rhoda Wilson, Expose News:

In a speech earlier this year at the Adaptation Finance Summit for Africa, Bill Gates again took the opportunity to market his vaccines.

“We all know that malnutrition is a scourge,” he said.  And then within a few words switched into his sales pitch for vaccines.

“At the turn of the century, many people realised that we had vaccines that could save lives,” he said, but they were not getting to the children in poorer nations who needed them most.


He said a great number of leaders decided to support the endeavour.  “But it’s not the funding that’s exciting.  What’s exciting is what resulted …. I don’t think we can celebrate it enough.”

Below is a commentary on Gates’ speech at the Adaptation Finance Summit for Africa.

“My personal engagement with climate uh started uh because I was spending time in Africa talking to Farmers about the challenges they faced … the impact of a bad harvest is malnutrition, its immiseration,” Gates said.

At the Africa Climate Summit in September, Gates claimed to have had a conversation with a Kenyan farmer named Mary.  This conversation was as dubious as his other remarks at the Summit.  We should not assume Gates is telling the truth when he claims to have spoken to farmers in Africa for longer than it took for the camera to click or for a short video clip to be made.

“We all know that malnutrition is a scourge … malnourishment is a factor in the majority of developing world deaths and so it’s through this vector that the deep inequity of climate change takes place,” he said.

Gates’ use of the word “inequity” is specific.  Inequity is not the same as inequality as we discuss in more detail at the end of this article.

He made a significant error in judgment when trying to sell climate change as the cause of malnutrition.  Poverty is a major cause of malnutrition, not so-called “climate change.”

According to Hunger Notes: “Poverty is a principal cause of hunger in Africa and elsewhere. Individuals living in poverty often cannot afford food of sufficient quality or quantity to live a healthy life.”

In 2014, a Ghanaian paper published in the American International Journal of Social Science noted that “poverty in Africa is caused by a number of factors including corruption and poor governance, limited employment opportunities, poor infrastructure, poor resource usage, wars and unending conflicts, poor World Bank and IMF policies, among others … In Africa, programmes designed to fight poverty are not fully implemented because the funds end up in the hands of corrupt individuals, who pocket the majority.”

This endemic poverty was exacerbated by covid measures, such as lockdowns, that were imposed on populations.

“’Meal-to-meal’ is how many live in African countries.  If the government locks you down, where do you get your next meal from? The lockdown was cruel, it was starving people. It was the most short-sighted, ignorant, arrogant and evil concept to erupt out of the current ‘civilization’,” South African lawyer Justine Isernhinke wrote.

But Gates doesn’t suggest addressing poverty which for billionaires such as himself there is a simple solution.  Instead of re-distributing their wealth, billionaires have been accumulating more.

Oxfam noted in January 2023 that since 2020, billionaires have seen extraordinary increases in their wealth while at the same time, “at least 1.7 billion workers now live in countries where inflation is outpacing wages, and over 820 million people – roughly one in ten people on Earth – are going hungry.”

“When we hear all these challenges it’s easy to feel like, uh you know, do we ever solve these problems,” Gates said.  “And so, I want to give two examples where the world came together and fantastic solutions resulted.”

The first “fantastic solution” Gates touted was global health.  For Gates “global health” is all about “vaccines” from which he and his cronies earn $20 from each dollar invested.

Gates began his sales pitch: “At the turn of the century, many uh people realised uh that uh we had vaccines that could save lives and they were getting to the rich country but not to the children who needed them most.”

“And a great number of leaders uh decided to support that endeavour. Uh, David Cameron was a strong supporter. Uh, UK is the uh uh the biggest funder of that effort. But it’s not the funding that’s exciting.  What’s exciting is what resulted … and the world came together and that it’s such a triumph. I I don’t think we can uh celebrate it enough.”

“Vaccines that could save lives,” Gates said. So, what really “resulted”?  Did his vaccines save lives?

In 1988, Gates embarked on a campaign to eliminate polio from the world through a programme called the Global Polio Eradication Initiative. The result?  Reports vary, said Dr. Kevin Stillwagon, but the consensus is that hundreds of thousands of children were paralysed due to vaccine-induced polio.

What about other vaccines that were administered to “those that need them”?

In 2016, a highly respected group of Danish researchers found from a series of different studies going back 15 years, that vaccinating African infants with diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis (“DTP”) vaccines increases the likelihood of early death from 2 to 10 times expected.

Additionally, women in Kenya and other countries fell victim to WHO’s tetanus vaccination programme.  The tetanus vaccine intentionally contained anti-fertility ingredients.  WHO’s anti-fertility vaccine was developed in response to perceived overpopulation. These vaccines have been used – without people’s knowledge or consent – since the mid-’90s.

Gates offered another solution; “seed innovation.”

“The CG system uh is not well known uh but that’s the group CGIAR … a group that does uh seed Innovation … I would say one clear imperative uh as we move forward on this adaptation agenda is fully funding uh their work uh if they’re able uh over the next 3 years uh to have uh resources of $4 billion they’ll be able to get improved seeds uh to over 500 million farmers.”
