Chicago Humanities Festival to Host Bill Gates on Climate Change

Bill Gates will join Chicago Humanities Festival on February 25th to discuss his new book, How to Avoid a Climate Disaster, in a special livestreaming event. Dax Sheperd and Monica Padman, hosts of the podcast Armchair Experts, will conduct the conversation about the solutions we already have for climate change and the breakthroughs we need to save the planet.

In his urgent, authoritative book, 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. Gates as 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. In his book, he not only explains why we need to work toward zero-net emissions of greenhouse gases, but also details what we need to do to achieve this profoundly important goal.
