Bill Gates Lets College Students Download a Free Digital Copy of His Book, How to Avoid a Climate Disaster

FYI: Earlier this year, Bill Gates published the New York Times bestseller, How to Avoid a Climate Disaster: The Solutions We Have and the Breakthroughs We Need. In the book, Gates explains why we need to work toward net-zero emissions of greenhouse gases, and how we can achieve this goal.  Given that this responsibility will eventually fall to a younger generation of leaders, Gates has decided to make a digital copy of his book available to every college and university student in the world.

The book can be downloaded an .epub file which can be opened in a compatible e-reader application on many devices. An email address, along with a name of college/university, is required. Find the book here.

    What does Bill Gates have to say about the coming climate crisis predicted on the cover of Time magazine in the 70’s which predicted the “Coming Ice Age”? Or acid rain, or the rainforests, or the East Anglia scandal, or any of the other hoaxes the media and the “scientific” community has brought to bear to scare people to death? Making predictions of what’s gonna happen 10-20 years from now is all profit, no loss. Nobody will remember them by then, and you can sound like a genius now. Oh by the way, I imagine Gates will be selling his home (one of the largest in the world) to reduce his carbon footprint, right? Thought so.
