How to Avoid a Climate Disaster: The Solutions We Have and the Breakthroughs We Need is a 2021 book by Bill Gates. In it, Gates presents what he learned in over a decade of studying climate change and investing in innovations to address global warming and recommends strategies to tackle it.
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.

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 toward certain environmental disaster.
We all know that Malaysia is blessed with its strategic location in the region with the west of Peninsular Malaysia borders the Straits of Malacca, and the east of Peninsular Malaysia and Sabah & Sarawak border the South China Sea.
Malaysia is generally free from severe natural disasters such as earthquake, volcanic eruption and typhoon. Indeed, most Malaysian lived their entire life in Malaysia, with little alertness or disaster planning on these natural disasters.
However, the recent extreme weather in the country has also posed another questions:
Are we free and safe now?
Is global warming real?
Is climate change real?
And if climate change is happening now?
According to Floodlist, there is more flooding has affected parts of Peninsular Malaysia, prompting over 8,000 people to evacuate their homes.
For example, the recent flash flood is Kedah, or East Malaysia – Sabah & Sarawak!
In this book How to Avoid a Climate Disaster, Bill Gates presents what he learned in over a decade of studying climate change and investing in innovations to address global warming and recommends strategies to tackle it.
According to GoodReads, Bill Gates sets out a wide-ranging, practical and accessible plan for how the world and everyone can get to zero greenhouse gas emissions in time to avoid a climate catastrophe.
The causes and effects of climate change
In fact, Bill Gates has spent a decade investigating the causes and effects of climate change. Bill Gates has focused on what must be done in order to stop the planet’s slide toward certain environmental disaster, with the help of many experts in the fields of physics, chemistry, biology, engineering, political science, and finance.
In this book How to Avoid a Climate Disaster, he explains why we need to work toward net-zero emissions of greenhouse gases, as well as the details of what we need to do to achieve this profoundly important goal.
Bill Gates 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.
At last, Bill Gates 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.
Bill Gates has makes it clear that 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.
No one is safe until everyone is safe!
We are the global citizen, even though we are claimed to be “safe” from natural disasters, but..
No one is safe until everyone is safe! Just like the case of COVID-19!

You heard about the heat waves, wildfires, or devastating floods across the globe…… These are no longer weather anomalies but part of the new normal thanks to global warming, scientists say.
What has happened?
“The old records belong to a world that no longer exists,” Martin Hoerling, a research meteorologist at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, told The Washington Post.
According to CNB News, it doesn’t take a climate scientist to see the changes that have occurred. In the maps below, using NOAA data, Climate Central illustrates the warmer temperatures the U.S. has experienced. When comparing the latest “normals” to what used to be normal a century ago, the difference is clear — seen in red from coast to coast.

The key point is that, if we learn the lessons of Covid-19,
we can approach climate change more informed about the
consequences of inaction, and more prepared to save lives and prevent the worst possible outcome. The current global
crisis can inform our response to the next one. Bill Gates, Co-founder, Microsoft Corporation69
