How to Avoid a Climate Disaster: The Solutions We Have and the Breakthroughs We Need, a book authored by Bill Gates offers an engrossing explanation of how world global warming can be stopped and how to avoid a climate disaster by decreasing greenhouse gas emissions to zero. It interprets the deeper and analytical aspects of the climate change dilemma.
Gates has been doing exceptional work for improving the health and living conditions of the people in poor countries. He has been vocal about the climate and energy change policies that he believed might impede the effort against poverty and diseases.
“I came to focus on climate change in an indirect way—through the problem of energy poverty.”
In this book, he has explained the consequences of climate change as a huge threat to humanity that can impact the lives of people in developing countries. Raising the living standards of poor people is crucial because they are the most vulnerable to floods, heatwaves, and droughts.
“I wrote How to Avoid a Climate Disaster because I think we’re at a crucial moment. I’ve seen exciting progress in the more than 15 years that I’ve been learning about energy and climate change. The cost of renewable energy from the sun and wind has dropped dramatically. There’s more public support for taking big steps to avoid a climate disaster than ever before. And governments and companies around the world are setting ambitious goals for reducing emissions.” – Bill Gates
Gates’ book emphasizes the importance of improving the strength of both rich and poor countries to current and future climate change that cannot now be ignored. His book makes sure that the solution is to abolish global emissions of greenhouse gases.
“I knew that greenhouse gases were making the temperature rise, but I had assumed that there were cyclical variations or other factors that would naturally prevent a true climate disaster. And it was hard to accept that as long as humans kept emitting any amount of greenhouse gases, temperatures would keep going up.”
The book is set to release on February 16, 2021.
