How to Avoid a Climate Disaster
We will read and discuss the title book by Bill Gates, who spent a decade consulting with physical scientists, political scientists and leaders in finance to find the most acceptable ways to restrict climate change. He describes the breakthroughs needed in science, public policies to convince and create a consensus throughout the public and private sectors across the world. Gates details a plan for reaching zero emissions and he talks about what each of us can do. Gerry Lapidus has conducted OLLI book discussions since 2005. The classes are informal and conversational. He leads the first week’s discussion and requests volunteers to lead the remaining sessions while he serves as moderator. Please read the Prologue and Section 1 (p.3-36) for the first session. This Study Group is sponsored by Rosemary and Mike Rosenberg in honor of Gerry Lapidus for leading book discussions since 2005!
