    Bill Gates

     

    “I wrote this book because I don’t just see the problem of climate change; I also see the opportunity to solve it” – Bill Gates

     

    Gates’ book is compulsively readable. His ambition was to ‘cut through the noise’ and give consumers better tools for understanding what works, an ambition he meets admirably. It more than that, however. Gates can get an audience with anyone, can marshal almost limitless resources, and is dogged in the detail. The result – particularly in the wake of the Trump presidency – is thrilling — Emma Brockes ― The Guardian

     

    Of the many books I have come across recently making the case that climate change will be a catastrophe, but we can do something about it, this is the best … The relentless practicality of the book combined with Gates’s firm faith in innovation do not promote despair. He exudes optimism; things will get better, not least because, as John Lennon once sang, they can’t get no worse — Bryan Appleyard ― Sunday Times

     

    It is mostly concerned with solutions rather than problems. This already marks it out as something of an outlier within environmental literature… if you’re after an approachable book about what needs to happen next, this is a great place to start — Ed Conway ― The Times

     

    Bold but well argued … a compelling explanation of how the world can stop global warming by reducing greenhouse gas emissions effectively to zero… [Gates] is a serious and genuine force for good on climate change — Bob Ward ― Observer

     

    How to Avoid a Climate Disaster is clear, concise on a colossal subject, and intelligently holistic in its approach to the problem. — Adam Vaughan ― New Scientist

     

    It all makes for a meaty manifesto which Gates hopes can offer sufficient variety to appeal across political divides and “shift the conversation” away from the polarisation and misinformation that has clouded discussion about climate change up until now. — Martin Bentham ― Evening Standard

     

    Gates’s carefully packaged nuggets of information are not only easy to understand, but they aim to provide the reader with practical tools to engage with the density of climate change information … What Gates has achieved with his book is something rare in the swelling arena of popular climate literature. The Microsoft co-founder turned philanthropist has compiled a solutions-based strategy that is as informed on the commercial realities of scaling new technologies as it is on the environmental consequences of not doing so. — Daniel Murray ― The Business Post

     

    The most refreshing aspect of this book is its bracing mix of cold-eyed realism and number-crunched optimism … Ultimately [Gates’s] book is a primer on how to reorganise the global economy so that innovation focuses on the world’s gravest problems. It is a powerful reminder that if mankind is to get serious about tackling them, it must do more to harness the one natural resource available in infinite quantity-human ingenuity. ― Economist

     

    Gates plots out, in patient, simple prose, a pathway that would allow us to reduce carbon emissions from the current 51 billion tonnes a year to zero by 2050. — Thomas Jones ― London Review of Books
