A plan for climate change – October 19, 2020

How to avoid a climate disaster

It’s called How to Avoid a Climate Disaster: The Solutions We Have and the Breakthroughs We Need, and it will be published by Knopf on February 16, 2021.

It’s inspiring to see so much passion these days for dealing with climate change, and to know that the world has set some ambitious goals for solving it. What we need now are practical plans to reach those goals.

In my book, I’ll share what I’ve learned from more than a decade of studying climate change with experts and investing in the innovations we’ll need to address it. I hope to explain the science in a clear and compelling way. I’ll also propose a plan for what we need to do over the next decade and beyond to build the tools that will help us eliminate greenhouse gas emissions while scaling up the powerful solutions we already have. And I’ll suggest some concrete steps that individuals, governments, and companies can take to make it happen.

I’m excited about the book and eager to continue the conversation about how we can avoid a climate disaster.
