Science. Technology. Engineering. Nonfiction. HTML:In this urgent, authoritative book, Bill Gates sets out a wide-ranging, practicaland accessibleplan for how the world can get to zero greenhouse gas emissions in time to avoid a climate catastrophe.
Bill Gates has spent a decade investigating the causes and effects of climate change. With the help of experts in the fields of physics, chemistry, biology, engineering, political science, and finance, he has focused on what must be done in order to stop the planet's slide to certain environmental disaster. In this book, he not only explains why we need to work toward net-zero emissions of greenhouse gases, but also details what we need to do to achieve this profoundly important goal.
He gives us a clear-eyed description of the challenges we face. Drawing on his understanding of innovation and what it takes to get new ideas into the market, he describes the areas in which technology is already helping to reduce emissions, where and how the current technology can be made to function more effectively, where breakthrough technologies are needed, and who is working on these essential innovations. Finally, he lays out a concrete, practical plan for achieving the goal of zero emissionssuggesting not only policies that governments should adopt, but what we as individuals can do to keep our government, our employers, and ourselves accountable in this crucial enterprise.
As Bill Gates makes clear, achieving zero emissions will not be simple or easy to do, but if we follow the plan he sets out here, it is a goal firmly within our reach.

It was great! A really good summary of the climate change, an overview of current technologies (both available and future) and perhaps the most interesting- the obstacles that we also need to take into account when developing new innovations (socio-economic) How can the government help better? How can companies be more focused? How do we need to rethink our roles in the society? Bill Gates has thought about this a lot, and though I work with this as a daily bases, I had to read it a couple of times more to grasp his ideas. But read jt! Bill lifts your horizons. You won’t regret it

The climate change changes the society and we need to develop new rules for the society, if we want it to be fair and just ( )

Pragmatic and useful, but kind of as fun as reading a manual ( )

I found this be a good high level overview of climate change and an assessment of the pros and cons of various energy options. A huge focus is on governments to drive action via policy & incentives to decarbonise our power. I did find the book to drag on a bit.

Gates writes that the world emits 51 billion tons of greenhouse gas every year. In his book he lists what we can do to bring that down to zero and even take CO2 from past pollution out of the air. Like a true technophile, Gates assumes that if we don't get there with behavioural change, technology can save us. Investments must be made in research and development, and in order to determine where the available budgets are most effective, he introduces the concept of a 'green premium' which indicates how much more expensive the climate friendly solution is compared to the existing way that uses fossil fuels. This difference is not the same everywhere as it depends on which technology is replaced, and which solution is chosen. There are even cases where the switch to a climate-friendly alternative saves money, which Gates explains by outdated regulations aimed at goals other than climate. MK

This is pretty surface-level information on climate change and what we can do to mitigate the damage. There are some good facts here, I certainly learned a few things, but this is largely a wishlist of everything we need to reach net zero emissions, none of which we have at the moment. I think this is a good jumping off point if you're not sure what all is involved in climate change, but there are certainly better books by the experts out there. ( )
