About the summary

The world typically adds approximately 52 billion tons of greenhouse gases into the world each year. Following the reports and suggestions of experts in the field, Bill Gates, in his book, How to Avoid Climate Disaster: The Solutions We Have and the Breakthroughs We Need, lays out what the world needs to do in order to reduce that number to zero by the year 2050. In his book, Gates takes into account both the current energy needs of the world, the projected needs in the future, both current and hopefully forthcoming technological advances, and the need of the developing world to increase their energy usage.
