How to Avoid a Climate Disaster

by Bill Gates

After reading (skimming) the IPCC report, you may be interested in some practical ways we can improve on a systems level. Individual changes are great, but we need significant change in sectors that no single individual has power over in order to make a lasting impact. In How to Avoid a Climate Disaster, Bill Gates unpacks the 5 largest areas that contribute to carbon emissions and lays out realistic innovations that we need in each sector in order to reach net zero. I appreciate that his proposals aren’t pie-in-the-sky sort of ideas, but are backed with logic and data. They’re also laid out in a way that’s easy to understand, in typical Bill fashion (I’m a big fan, if you can’t tell).

If you’re interested in reading this book, try to find it secondhand or a your local library.
