Zoom Webinar Author Talk and Q & A
Bill Gates, How To Avoid a Climate Disaster: The Solutions We Have and The Breakthroughs We Need
In Conversation with Kristen Welker, Co-Anchor, “Weekend Today” and NBC News Chief White House Correspondent

In this urgent, authoritative book, Bill Gates sets out a wide-ranging, practical–and accessible–plan for how the world can get to zero greenhouse gas emissions in time to avoid a climate catastrophe.

Bill Gates has spent a decade investigating the causes and effects of climate change. With the help of experts in the fields of physics, chemistry, biology, engineering, political science, and finance, he has focused on what must be done in order to stop the planet’s slide to certain environmental disaster. In this book, he not only explains why we need to work toward net-zero emissions of greenhouse gases, but also details what we need to do to achieve this profoundly important goal.

Kristen Welker is the co-anchor of “Weekend TODAY” and NBC News Chief White House Correspondent whose hard-hitting political reporting appears across all NBC News and MSNBC platforms, including “NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt,” “TODAY,” “Meet the Press,” and NBCNews.com. She moderated the final presidential debate between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden on October 22, 2020 at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee. Welker, a native of Philadelphia, graduated cum laude from Harvard University with a Bachelor’s Degree in American history. She lives in Washington, D.C. with her husband John Hughes.

Tickets: $36 for ticket and copy of book (includes shipping).

Presented in partnership with the National JCC Literary Consortium, A Cappella Books, Atlanta, and Books & Books, Coral Gables. Led by the Marcus JCC of Atlanta.
