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 emissions—suggesting 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.
