Strategic advisor of the Academy participated in the Conversation with Bill Gates organized by American University on February 17

Bill Gates set 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 in his urgent, authoritative book ‘How to Avoid a Climate Disaster’. With a moderation of Michelle Miller – a national correspondent for CBS News and a graduate of Howard University, Bill Gates talked about his new book, what he’s learned about this complex and far-reaching challenge, and why he remains hopeful that we can overcome climate change.
