So Mr Gates environmentalism reaches back through to his father and his father's associates who were early day environmentalists who sought to save t he environment through population control.

The geo and petrological science on this is very clear, and readily obtained and scrutinized. Not to mention that all oil exploration companies use the '(mainly) oceanic algae buried to the oil horizon window, where it is cooked and subsequently trapped in impermeable subsurface structures theory' (I don't know what the formal name for the theory is) to find and produce oil, not the abiotic 'theory'.

And although this is more of a spoof (though a fairly accurate one), here's what RationalWiki has to say about it. Given some of the other links and biased 'information' we've seen here, I hope I'll be allowed some leeway...

Abiotic Oil Theory

No oil company has ever successfully found a well using the theory and it is generally considered pseudoscience on the order of global warming denialism.[3] It originated in the Soviet Union, its major scientific supporters worked in Russia, and it has never gained a following anywhere outside the Soviet Union. Having largely passed with the USSR, it occasionally makes a comeback among less intellectual conservative elements,[4] where it is used as an excuse to continue ignoring the energy crisis of the future.[5] Russian creationists also favour it.
The Swedes, in fact, drilled in Siljan at Gold's behest and only came up with 80 barrels of oily sludge over a six year period, which easily may have been residue from oil lubricant used in the drilling machinery. Abiotic oil proponents, however, continue to cherry-pick minor increases in production at certain oil wells and declare it as "proof" of abiotic oil.[6]
The radio talk show host George Noory quite often tells his listeners that abiotic oil is the real deal.

To any real scientist, that is exactly why you do release your data. It's called "the scientific method". If the findings can't be duplicated, it's not science, it's political advocacy.

What jimbunyard said.
The arguments (abiotic versus biotic oil formation), however, have been pushed aside in recent years by fears that global warming is directly attributable to carbon dioxide produced by burning hydrocarbons. If this is true, it doesn’t matter if oil is limited or not because using it is causing immense damage.

No.
Bill Gates' father, William H. Gates Sr. has long been involved with Planned Parenthood.

According to what I was told many years ago it was a guy from Melbourne Australia who wrote the original code that Bill bought for a song. I've heard that from two separate sources but I haven't heard it directly from the programmer.

Sorry GordMay but if you dig a kittle deeper you will find that Planned Parenthood's founders were also leading Eugenicist. And Bills father was a member of Eugenics movement. Have you stopped to think why so many Planned Parenthood's clinics are in predominantly black areas. You will also find a relationship between white supremacists such as the KKK and these two organizations. Not surprising since they all agreed in pure breeding policies to create a better nation. And the biggest laugh is the three movements shared common political support with strong representation in one particular political party in the USA. The life of the late Senator Bird in particular makes interesting reading.

Not sure how any of this relates to cruising, but it's sort of interesting anyway. For my part I don't hate anyone who has a differing perspective. In fact I enjoy the dialogue as long as it doesn't turn bitter and sarcastic.

It is true that Margaret Sanger was a proponent of eugenics. Sanger was passionate about contraception—perhaps to a fault—and her fervor about promoting her birth control agenda led her to align herself with eugenicists, along with racists and an assortment of people of questionable character.
http://rhrealitycheck.wpengine.netdn.../08/Sanger.pdf

Sanger was also a supporter of the Anti-Nazi Commitee.
https://www.nyu.edu/projects/sanger/...Doc=240246.xml

A 2011 report by Life Dynamics, which opposes abortion, used Census data to determine the African-American and Hispanic population of each zipcode where Planned Parenthood has an office. The report was intended to show that the abortion clinics are placed mostly in areas where black residents exceed the average black population of the state.

But when you look closely at the data, it turns out that there are only about 110 locations (out of about 800) where the black population exceeds 25 percent of the overall population. That certainly does not support the claim that “most” clinics are in “black neighborhoods.”
http://www.klannedparenthood.com/wp-...on-Control.pdf

Separately, in 2011, the Guttmacher Institute surveyed all abortion providers (about 1,700), including Planned Parenthood, and found that 60 percent are in majority-white neighborhoods — and that fewer than one in ten abortion providers are located in neighborhoods where more than half of the residents are black.
Claim that Most Abortion Clinics Are Located in Black or Hispanic Neighborhoods Is False

Back when IBM was looking for software to run their new PC computer. Digital Research's CPM (control program for micro-computers) was 3-4 months away from being useable on the PC.

Bill Gates who's very small company called Microsoft, which started by selling a basic program for the old homebrew Altair, purchased a software package from another developer called DOS or disk operating system and ran on 5-1/4" floppies, (Ah the good ol days). He then turned around and licensed it to IBM for the PC. When the PC at $5000 became an overnight success, BIll Gates and Microsoft grew and grew.

OS-2 was going to be a next big thing and it was developed by Mircosoft who's windows 3.0 and 3.1 (after dos 1.0 to 5.1) was doing well. But OS2 was written for 32 bit computers (Windoes 95 was 16 bit) and was to be the future. Parts of it's code is still in windows today, but it never really caught on. It was famous for the Blue Screen of Death (A screen dump). I remember it well. I also had a copy of DOS 1.0 (one 5-1/4" floppy) as well as Autocad 1.0 (two 3-1/2" floppies).
