Virtual Event

SJCC Book Fest in Your Living Room Presents: Bill Gates
“How to Avoid a Climate Disaster: The Solutions We Have and the Breakthroughs We Need”
Interviewed by Kristen Welker, Co-Anchor, “Weekend Today” and NBC News Chief White House Correspondent
Zoom Interview & Q&A

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.
