51,000 million and 0 are the two figures that, according to Bill Gates, we need to keep in mind when talking about climate change.

And overcoming this challenge would be “the most amazing thing humanity has ever done,” says Microsoft’s billionaire founder.

In comparison, ending the covid-19 pandemic is something “very, very easy “, he says.

Gates’ new book, “How to Avoid a Climate Disaster,” is a guide to tackling global warming.
