- In stock online
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 gasses in the atmosphere peak and begin to decline.
So what are we waiting for?
