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.
 
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.

在這本時間緊迫、內容權威的書中,比爾•蓋茲制定了一個範圍廣泛、實用易行的計劃,旨在說明吾人如何能及時達成溫室氣體零排放的目標,以免發生氣候災難。
 
比爾•蓋茲花了十年時間研究氣候變遷的原因和效應。在物理、化學、生物、工程、政治和金融等領域專家的協助下,他努力尋找阻止地球失速滑向環境災難的方法。在本書中,他不僅解釋了為什麼我們需要努力實現溫室氣體零排放,還詳細說明了為了達成此一目標,哪些是我們非做不可的事。
 
比爾•蓋茲清楚描繪了我們所面臨的挑戰。書中援用了他對創新的理解以及將新理念推向市場所需的條件,他描述了哪些領域已經應用科技減少廢氣的排放,目前科技能在哪些方面或以何種方式更有效地發揮效能,哪些地方最需要突破性技術,以及哪些學者正在致力於這些創新技術。最後,他為實現零排放的目標提出了具體可行的方案--從政府應該執行的政策,一直到我們個人可以做哪些事來促成政府、雇主和我們自己在這個重要任務中盡到責任。
 
正如比爾•蓋茲明確宣示的,實現零排放絕非易事,但如果我們能遵循他提出的做法,那麼這個目標將可實現。
