About the Original Book:
Bill Gates has a message for all of society: we need to get to zero emissions by 2050 or face catastrophic consequences around the globe. Increasingly severe weather, drought, famine, and the destruction of critical ecosystems—along with trillions of dollars of economic damage and millions of lives lost a year—are all things that await us if we refuse to listen.
Luckily, he knows what we need to do to fix it. Gates takes the data behind every-day energy use and the science behind highly-technical energy innovations and provides an easily-accessible framework for anyone to understand the problem and the potential solutions. For those who already knew that climate change was a problem, his book is a great introduction into where we can go from here and a great way to drive the conversation about what might work best. For anyone who is skeptical of the science behind climate change, Gates isn’t here to convince you. He is here only to offer solutions to the biggest problem humanity has ever collectively faced.
