 Project Syndicate — This month Bill Gates published his new book, “How to Avoid a Climate Disaster: The Solutions We Have and the Breakthroughs We Need.” 

Connie Hedegaard: Let me start with a confession: For years, I thought you were not particularly interested in climate change. I vividly recall a closed session at Davos some years back. The discussion turned to climate, instead of other sustainability issues, and you left the room.
