In this urgent, authoritative book, Bill Gates sets out a wide-ranging, practical - and accessible - plan 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 toward 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.
Forte della sua esperienza di innovatore capace di imporre idee rivoluzionarie, Gates ci introduce alle tecnologie che già oggi aiutano a ridurre le emissioni, mostra dove e in che modo possono diventare più efficienti, indica in quali settori sono necessari progressi immediati, racconta le storie di chi sta lavorando alle prossime, essenziali, scoperte. L’autore presenta un programma concreto per arrivare alle emissioni zero, suggerendo non soltanto le politiche che dovrebbero adottare le amministrazioni, ma anche quello che possiamo fare come cittadini per responsabilizzare su questa missione cruciale i governi, le imprese, e noi stessi.
Bill Gates lo dice apertamente: azzerare le emissioni non sarà semplice, ma seguendo le proposte di questo libro finalmente è un obiettivo alla nostra portata. In un saggio documentato e autorevole, Bill Gates presenta un programma preciso e realizzabile per azzerare le emissioni di gas serra in tempo per evitare un disastro climatico.
The COVID-19 pandemic isn’t over. But even as governments around the world try to get it under control, they’re also starting to talk about what happens next. How can we prevent another pandemic from killing millions of people and devastating the global economy? Can we even hope to accomplish this?
Bill Gates believes the answer is yes, and he has written a largely upbeat book that lays out clearly and convincingly what the world should learn from COVID-19, explains the science of fighting pandemics, and suggests what all of us can do to help prevent another one.
