Can we stop global warming in the next 30 years?
According to renowned environmentalist and author Paul Hawken and the team at Project Drawdown, the answer is yes. We can keep the temperature of the Earth from rising past the critical mark of two degrees Celsius and actually draw down carbon out of the atmosphere to reverse global warming by 2050.
Project Drawdown has identified 100 substantive solutions that, implemented collectively, could realistically keep us from catastrophe, and at the same time create the world we all want to live in.
Led by Chad Frischmann, the team of over 70 researchers carefully measured the 80 solutions that are already up and running around the world and modeled how they might be scaled up over the next 30 years. The team also evaluated the potential of 20 “coming attraction” solutions that are not yet in use but could soon be utilized, such as autonomous vehicles, hyperloop, and the artificial leaf. The researchers then ranked all 100 solutions to show which ones make the biggest impact and should be prioritized by investors, city planners, business leaders, educators, and NGOs. The solutions, modeling results, and rankings are presented in the beautifully designed book, Drawdown.Visit Event Website >>
