From the foreword: “Sometimes, when a concept or institution reaches its logical conclusion, the world looks at the results and cries: “Never again.” For really bad ideas – from totalitarianism to fossil fuel dependence – saying “never again” isn’t enough. Humanity needs other, better ideas to take their place. That’s where we are today. We know we can’t avoid the cataclysmic impacts of global warming by only focusing on achieving net zero carbon emissions; we must also rapidly re-sequester carbon. Drawdown – by identifying and researching dynamic, innovative solutions – creates the playbook for this urgent goal.” Drawdown presents one hundred techniques and practices, many of which already exist, are economically viable and are being used by a variety of communities throughout the world. Climate change is an overwhelming problem and it’s all too easy to despair. Drawdown is a powerfully hopeful book, full of things that individuals can act on. Just looking at it for this blog post has made me feel better and inspired to do something!
