Peter Kareiva (Director/Institute of the Environment and Sustainability, UCLA)This is the ideal environmental sciences textbook—only it is too interesting and inspiring to be called a textbook.
Andreas Kuhlmann (CEO/German Energy Agency)Drawdown is an exceptional example of cooperation between some of the sharpest thinkers on climate and energy matters, an atlas that has the potential to save the planet.
John Elkington (CEO/Volans)I am blown away by Drawdown. Like hearing an advance copy of Sergeant Pepper, back in the day.
Jessica Rolph (Founding Partner/Happy Family)This book is a beautiful, inspiring, and deeply satisfying read. Most importantly it is no more doom and gloom. It is OPTIMISTIC and empowering. Paul Hawken is a true visionary and a brilliant voice for real solutions.
The 100 most substantive solutions to reverse global warming, based on meticulous research by leading scientists and policymakers around the world
In the face of widespread fear and apathy, an international coalition of researchers, professionals, and scientists have come together to offer a set of realistic and bold solutions to climate change. One hundred techniques and practices are described here—some are well known; some you may have never heard of. They range from clean energy to educating girls in lower-income countries to land use practices that pull carbon out of the air. The solutions exist, are economically viable, and communities throughout the world are currently enacting them with skill and determination. If deployed collectively on a global scale over the next thirty years, they represent a credible path forward, not just to slow the earth’s warming but to reach drawdown, that point in time when greenhouse gases in the atmosphere peak and begin to decline. These measures promise cascading benefits to human health, security, prosperity, and well-being—giving us every reason to see this planetary crisis as an opportunity to create a just and livable world.
