    Inhaltsangabe

    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 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. 

    This audiobook includes a downloadable PDF of charts, graphs, and pictures from the book.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "Gates gathers advice from experts while laying out his vision for technological innovations that could reduce greenhouse gases and stop the warming of the planet. If even some of his plans work, this might be the most important book of the year.” —CNN

    “One of the most accessible, practical, and interesting books on the topic to emerge since Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth.” Oprah Daily 

    “The most comprehensible explanation for what’s driving our warming planet; how to measure the impact of the myriad contributions to this staggering and seemingly incalculable problem; and ultimately how to go about finding more effective approaches to each of them. It’s the closest thing I’ve seen to a how-to guide for addressing the climate crisis.” —Clinton Leaf, Fortune

    Wichtige Fakten und interessante Perspektive

    Ein gutes Buch mit interessanten Fakten zum Thema Klimawandel. Aufgrund der vielen Zahlen und zum Teil technischen Themen darf man sich schon konzentrieren. Einfach so nebenbei hören geht nicht. Ist auch gut so, denn das Thema hat unsere volle Aufmerksamkeit verdient.

    Globale Betrachtung des Themas des 21. Jahrhundert

    Bill Gates gibt wichtige Denkanstöße und erörtert das Thema des 21. Jahrhunderts von einer globalen Perspektive und frei von jeglicher Ideologie. Auch wenn Herr Gates selbst für viele ein rotes Tuch ist, empfehle ich gerade diesen Personen sich Zeit zu nehmen und über die Vorschläge nachzudenken.

    Great for entrepreneurs and policy makers

    This book goes really deep into all the facts and thoughts one needs to understand the problem of climate change from an entrepreneurial point of view. It. also covers in detail what kind of policy change is needed in order to solve the problem.
    I can also recommend it to people with general interest in the topic as the author sticks to first principle thinking with all aspects covered.

    Interesting - Informative - Realistic Approach

    I really enjoyed this book. The Topics are presented in a clear and understandable way, realistic approaches are pointed out which can be taken into action.
    Also Wil Wheaton's presentation of the text was great, It was easy to listen to despite the difficult nature of the topic and it was timed perfectly so even a non native can understand everything ( if on a certain lvl. of english fluency). Overall a really good book, I would recommend!
