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.© Bill Gates 2020 (P) Penguin Audio 2020
