Drawdown is a compendium of every idea known to humanity at the present time that can slow or reverse the devastation of climate change. The Paris climate change protocols set out the lofty goals agreed to all the world’s governments except two in December of 2015. Drawdown is the nuts and bolts guide to implement those goals.
Maps, Measures, And Models
Edited by Paul Hawken, the book “maps, measures, models, and describes the 100 most substantive solutions to global warming. For each solution, we describe its history, the carbon impact it provides, the relative cost and savings, the path to adoption, and how it works. The goal of the research that informs Drawdown is to determine if we can reverse the buildup of atmospheric carbon within thirty years. All solutions modeled are already in place, well understood, analyzed based on peer-reviewed science, and are expanding around the world.”
