Chamath Palihapitiya Billionaire feels it’s disappointing ‘no one cares about Uyghurs in China.’

Chamath Palihapitiya Billionaire

In his recent Podcast, Chamath Palihapitiya Billionaire investor, talked about abuses happening with Uyghurs in China. It’s sad no one in the world is damn caring about what’s happening with the Uyghurs community in China. 

Torcher happening with Uyghurs and other Muslim minorities is sad. It is forced labor work and mass torching of communities that are not Chinese. Said Chamath Palihapitiya Billionaire investor.

Chamath said he is concerned about the supply chain, climate change, and Health system of America. China taking over Taiwan and Uyghurs facing problems is also a big concern. 

Billionaire investor Chamath Palihapitiya began a backlash on social media after speaking during a recent outbreak of his podcast that “nobody cares” about the ongoing human rights vitriols against the Uyghurs in China.

90 minute podcast of Chamath Palihapitiya investor:

In his 90-minute episode, Palihapitiya told co-host, Jason Calacanis, on their “All-In” podcast that he would be fibbing if he said he oversaw the Uyghurs, an ethnic Muslim minority in China’s northwest province of Xinjiang.

Every time I say that I care about the Uyghurs, I’m just lying if I don’t care. And so, I’d rather not lie to you and tell you the truth; it’s not a focus for me,” said Palihapitiya, a happening capitalist who owns 10% of the NBA team, the Golden State Warriors. From BBC.

Chamath Palihapitiya A Refugee:

Chamath also said as a refugee, my family flew a nation with its own set of human rights problems. So this is something that is very much a piece of my lived background,” said Palihapitiya, who was born in Sri Lanka. To be precise, my view is that human rights matter, whether in China, the US, or elsewhere. 

White house on human crimes in China:

The White House told a diplomatic boycott of the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing, citing “ongoing genocide and offenses against humanity in Xinjiang and other human liberties abuses.” This was in last month, December 2021. 

UN bureaucrats have earlier voiced worry over Beijing’s extreme measures of stopping those who condemn the Chinese Communist Party.

We learn about Mars through its molten activity

What if mars is molten?

Scientists are grappling with other equally fascinating questions. Such as whether Mars is still molten and whether it should become volcanically active again. Since Nasa’s Perseverance rover landed on the planet a year ago. Scientists are also eager to find signs of past life on the red planet – but they also wonder if Mars is still molten, and whether it could ever become so.

Dr Paul Byrne, an associate professor of planetary science at North Carolina State University. Said Mars has a long history of volcanic activity and tectonic activity. One of the most powerful volcanoes in the solar system. Olympus Mons is 16 miles high and has a diameter of almost 375 miles.

In 2011, researchers used images from Nasa’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter in an analysis of the Arabia Terra region to find further evidence of ancient volcanic activity on Mars. The images came from a study of the scarps caused by tectonic activity.

Earlier this year, a study finding that the mineral distribution on Arabia Terra is consistent. With explosive volcanic eruptions over a 500-million-year period about four billion years ago.

Mars is less geologically active than Earth

While Earth has about 40 active volcanoes. Mars is smaller and so may have lost heat more rapidly than Earth. However, even if Mars is less geologically active than Earth. The surface may still contain molten material.

The ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter, a joint project between European Space Agency and Russia’s Roscosmos, detected hydrochloric acid (HCl), a gas that volcanoes emit.

Most of Mars’s geology is over now, but there’s a long tail at the end.A study accomplished in 2021 examining data from the orbiter may provide insights into the origin of current-day volcanoes.

Dr. Kevin Olsen of the University of Oxford believes this indicates that there has been recent volcanic activity on Mars. But it is unclear whether it was caused by a volcanic activity because HCl was found only seasonally, usually associated with dust storms.

Therefore, it may have resulted from the chemical composition of the minerals on the surface as opposed to volcanic activity.
