Bill Gates Granted Authority To Buy 2100 More Acres Of North Dakota Farmland Authored by Steve Watson via Summit News, Bill Gates, who already owns close to 270,000 acres of land in the US, has been granted the legal authority to buy another 2100 acres in North Dakota despite protests by local residents.
Gates, already the largest farmland owner in the country, has secured the go ahead to buy the land for $13.5 million under his 'Red River Trust' company.
The Daily Mail reports: North Dakota's Agriculture Commissioner, Republican Doug Goehring, previously said that many people feel they are being exploited by the ultra-rich who buy land but do not necessarily share the state's values. 'I've gotten a big earful on this from clear across the state, it's not even from that neighborhood,' Goehring told KFYR-TV.
Gates is also intent on pushing 100% synthetic meat products while he buys up record amounts of farmland and monopolizes global food production.
