Amongst the many books, movies, influencers, left, right, blogs, predictions, flag-waving, tree huggers to climate-change naysayers and two-stroke nitro-burning funny car enthusiasts, may we humbly suggest reading “How To Avoid A Climate Disaster” by Bill Gates, where he acknowledges that there is a tension between economic development and sustainability, yet he posits that accelerated innovation in green technology, particularly sustainable energy, would resolve it. This book is also available on Audible audiobook read by Will Wheaton, which is kinda weird listening to this if you just listened to Ready Player One and/or Ready Player Two… then pop this on. While this is all a nerd-level post, the data, trends and just looking out the window all present a near-future a dystopian planet Earth. What could be the downside of putting a little more effort into conservation.
Grab a copy of “How To Avoid a Climate Disaster” by Bill Gates at Whyte’s Booksmith in downtown San Anselmo (sure, it’s paper and we’re deforesting the planet with books, print, copies, sleeves for coffee, takeout products, bamboo forks et al) or on Audible for just One Audible credit on Amazon, the last digital rainforest. What does Bill Gates, Microsoft geek billionaire, know about Climate Change? What does Tony Robbins know about human behavior, or what did Henry Ford know about productivity, or what does Creekside know about Pizza… The more you know: start working towards Zero.
