Description - Drawdown by Paul Hawken
The 100 most substantive solutions to reverse global warming, based on meticulous research by leading scientists and policymakers around the world.
For the first time ever, an international coalition of leading researchers, scientists and policymakers has come together to offer a set of realistic and bold solutions to climate change. All of the techniques described here - some well-known, some you may have never heard of - are economically viable, and communities throughout the world are already enacting them. From revolutionizing how we produce and consume food to educating girls in lower-income countries, these are all solutions which, if deployed collectively on a global scale over the next thirty years, could not just slow the earth's warming, but reach drawdown- the point when greenhouse gases in the atmosphere peak and begin to decline. So what are we waiting for?
