We've all heard by now that the Earth is in deep trouble.

Human-produced greenhouse gases are heating the world at an unprecedented rate, with dire consequences.

But one of the world's richest individuals is committed to preventing climate catastrophe.

Since co-founding Microsoft, Bill Gates has been one of the world's most prominent billionaires and philanthropists, working through The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to foster global development.

How to Avoid a Climate Disaster is Gates' roadmap to reducing anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions to zero in the coming decades without sacrificing life-changing technology and dignity for the world's poorest people.

Gates spent years talking to researchers, scientists, investors, and global leaders about why just reducing emissions isn't enough to slow human-induced climate change.

The book details, in layperson's terms, how each of our systems, from transportation to food production, contribute to the problem and how to change them.
