Climate change is underway, as we see the distress signals in nature including sea level rise, drought, increased storm severity, and increases in temperature. We cannot ignore these obvious indicators of change. Like many people, do you feel the call to save the planet, but do not know how to take action? Fortunately, there’s an inspired coalition of climate scientists, researchers, and scholars working to figure out the best way forward for all of us. The work of the Drawdown foundation points to a future where we can reverse global warming and leave a better world for future generations.
Project Drawdown presents a comprehensive list of the top 100 climate solutions and ranks them by those with the greatest potential to reduce emissions or sequester carbon from the atmosphere, in addition to what the global costs and savings are to scale these solutions. Paul Hawken and his team present a solutions-based approach to reversing climate change that is becoming a part of mainstream discourse and education.

“We see global warming not as an inevitability but as an invitation to build, innovate, and effect change, a pathway that awakens creativity, compassion, and genius. This is not a liberal agenda, nor is it a conservative one. This is the human agenda.” - Paul Hawken
