Episode details

In this episode of Mentally Unscripted, Paul and Scott review How to Avoid a Climate Disaster: The Solutions We Have and the Breakthroughs We Need, by Bill Gates.


Top Takeaways

  • Gates assumes that climate change is real and that we can do something about it.

  • We must get to net 0 carbon emissions by 2050. Gates' position is that avoiding a climate disaster will come through innovation, not from reducing our demand for energy. We must develop greener technologies to accommodate our energy demand.

  • Neither Paul nor Scott will give up eating meat.
