Bill Gates Book About Climate Change Releasing in June 2020

gatesBill Gates is writing a book about energy and climate change that will be published by Doubleday in June 2020. With this new book, , Gates seeks to share what he’s learned in over a decade of studying climate change and investing in innovations to address the problems. He will set out a vision for how the world can work to build the tools it needs to get to net-zero greenhouse gas emissions. Anthony Chirico, President of the Knopf Doubleday Group, acquired world rights to the book from Michael I. Rudell of Franklin, Weinrib, Rudell & Vassallo.

In his book, Gates explains why he cares so deeply about climate change and what makes him optimistic that the world can prevent the worst impacts of the climate crisis. “Climate change is a unique global problem,” said Gates. “I am writing this book to help identify how we can work on a local, national, and global level to build the technologies, businesses, and industries to avoid the worst impacts of climate change.”

“Bill Gates has always been a problem-solver and now he’s addressing the world’s greatest problem: climate change,” said Robert Gottlieb, who will be editing the book for Doubleday. “His book not only makes the situation we’re in crystal clear — even I can follow the science! — but it’s prescriptive rather than tendentious: there are, he assures us, potential solutions that are realistic and affordable. His is a voice the world has come to trust.”

Gates’s interest in climate change is a natural outgrowth of the efforts by his foundation to reduce poverty and disease. Climate change, according to Gates, will have the biggest impact on the people who have done the least to cause it. As a technologist, he has seen first-hand how innovation can change the world. By investing in research, inventing new technologies, and by deploying them quickly at large scale, Gates believes climate change can be addressed in meaningful ways.

Gates said, “To prevent the worst effects of climate change, we have to get to net-zero emissions of greenhouse gases. This problem is urgent, and the debate is complex, but I believe we can come together to invent new carbon-zero technologies, deploy the ones we have, and ultimately avoid a climate catastrophe.”
