Speed and Scale
Venture capitalist John Doerr reveals a sweeping-and actionable-plan to conquer humanity’s greatest challenge: climate change.
In 2006, John Doerr was challenged by his fifteen-year-old daughter to solve the climate crisis. And for 15 years, that has been his goal.
Despite many solutions already being in hand-batteries, electric vehicles, solar and wind power- global warming has continued to worsen as we lack the policy, investment, and global consensus to fully deploy them. We need a clear course of action.
Using Objectives and Key Results, the tool that has helped Google and many other start-ups achieve awe-inspiring goals, Doerr presents an action plan to safeguard the planet for generations to come. Speed & Scale identifies what we need to do to cut emissions across every sector and reach net zero by 2050, with clear-eyed realism and scientific precision.
Doerr weaves his hard-won cleantech lessons with first-hand accounts from Bill Gates, Christiana Figueres, Al Gore, Mary Barra, Jeff Bezos, and dozens of other bold climate leaders.Speed & Scale is a call to arms for humankind, a launchpad for ambitious leaders who are ready to act now.
