  • - The Solutions We Have and the Breakthroughs We Need
    by Bill Gates
    £10.49 - 18.99

    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 toward 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.

  • - De løsninger vi har, og de gennembrud vi behøver
    by Bill Gates

    Bill Gates’ formulering af den opgave, som klimaforandringerne stiller os over for, er lige så enkel, som den er ambitiøs: Vi skal nedbringe den årlige globale udledning af drivhusgasser fra de nuværende 51 mia. tons til... nul! I denne vigtige og velunderbyggede bog fremlægger han en omfattende, praktisk – og letforståelig – plan for, hvordan verden kan nå dette mål i tide til at undgå en klimakatastrofe.Bill Gates har brugt et årti på at undersøge klimaforandringernes årsager og virkninger. Med hjælp fra eksperter inden for fysik, kemi, biologi, ingeniørvidenskab, statskundskab og økonomi har han fokuseret på, hvad der skal gøres for at standse planetens kurs mod en miljømæssig katastrofe.I bogen giver han os en skarpsynet beskrivelse af de udfordringer, vi står over for. Som teknologiudvikler har Bill Gates erfaret, hvordan ny teknologi og innovation kan forandre verden. Med afsæt i denne erfaring beskriver han de områder, hvor teknologien allerede bidrager til at reducere CO2-udledningerne, hvor og hvordan den nuværende teknologi kan bringes til at fungere mere effektivt, hvor der er brug for teknologiske gennembrud, og hvem der arbejder på disse helt nødvendige innovationer. Endelig fremlægger han en konkret, praktisk plan for at nå målet om at få CO2-udledningerne ned på nul, idet han ikke alene foreslår politiske målsætninger, som regeringer bør arbejde ud fra, men også hvad vi som enkeltpersoner kan gøre for at holde vores regeringer, vores arbejdsgivere og os selv ansvarlige i denne livsvigtige kamp for klimaet.Bill Gates gør det klart, at det ikke bliver let at få vores udledning af drivhusgasser helt ned på nul, men hvis vi følger den plan, han fremlægger her, er det faktisk et mål, der ligger inden for vores rækkevidde.

    The COVID-19 pandemic isn't over, but even as governments around the world strive to put it behind us, they're also starting to talk about what happens next. How can we prevent a new pandemic from killing millions of people and devastating the global economy? Can we even hope to accomplish this?Bill Gates believes the answer is yes, and in this book he lays out clearly and convincingly what the world should have learned from COVID-19 and what all of us can do to ward off another disaster like it. Relying on the shared knowledge of the world's foremost experts and on his own experience of combating fatal diseases through the Gates Foundation, he first makes us understand the science of corona diseases. Then he helps us understand how the nations of the world, working in conjunction with one another and with the private sector, can not only ward off another COVID-like catastrophe but also go far to eliminate all respiratory diseases, including the flu.Here is a clarion call - strong, comprehensive, and of the gravest importance - from one of our greatest and most effective thinkers and activists.
