"to identify and "identify and the impacts of the top 100 solutions to not only stop climate change but to go beyond and reverse it Hugely optimistic and ambitious but grounded in reality They made a huge effort to err on the conservative side with their projections of the future The best bit Contained within this book is a blueprint to stop and reverse global warming in the next 30 years Using EXISTING technology Now we need the political will to make it happen If you need a feel good coffee table book then this is it If you re after real properly documented descriptions of realistic
Solutions Addressing The Climate Catastropheaddressing the climate catastrophe this book is a waste of trees The book does not even begin to explain the calculations behind the emission reduction claims The proposed solutions are also in no specific order which is very odd You d think they would sort the solutions by possible impact but no Drawdown is The Cronos Complex I long overdue As with all of Hawken s writings it s well conceived carefully researched and beautifully written Thank goodness for this effort YetIooked in vain for the evidence that the remedies discussed will materially change the trajectory of projected temperature increases How much below 2 C will we stabilize at with full implementation of these 100 remedies According to the book even the most aggressive scenario they model only reduces CO2 by ess than one gigaton out of about 40 gigatons we spew each year and that isn t until 2045 That means that we re still doomedI m also puzzled that the book is called The most comprehensive plan every proposed to reverse global warming It s not a plan It is a painstakingly researched compendium of currently used and and projected remedies As such it s an essential contribution to our collective knowledge about climate change action A plan however would have a set of goals objectives strategies indicators and Perhaps Paul or others are now working to transform this solid beginning into a real plan As a ong time planner I d be "happy to helpThere is also Maid of Dishonor (The Wedding Season, little discussion about the single most important variable affecting whether we retain aivable "to helpThere is also Dem Nordpol am nächsten little discussion about the single most important variable affecting whether we retain aivable and that is time or Heart Beat lack of it Most all comprehensive analyses conclude that we re essentially out of time to avoid the most existentially dangerous conseuences of climate chaos It s wildly optimistic and unsupported by the evidence to suggest as Drawdown does that we can reverse climate change even if most of these remedies are not fully implemented unt. The 100 most substantive solutions to reverse global warming based on meticulous research byeading 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 techniues and practices are descr. .
Il 2050Unless we almost fully decarbonize and drawdown in a decade or two we re doomed to 5 10 degrees F of warming by the end of the century That evel of warming will destabilize our politics our economy our food production our social cohesion and our infrastructure to such an extreme degree that the organized productive work necessary to implement these remedies will be next to impossible to sustainAnd even were we by some work necessary to implement these remedies will be next to impossible to sustainAnd even were we by some miracle to stabilize at the 2 C target we The Devils Possession ll have a barely habitable planet despite the conventional climate wisdom There sittle that is scientific about the 2 C target It s a convenient political decision that puts the need for urgent action far into the future We can see the severe conseuences on our ice caps our coral reefs and our weather with only 1 C warming todayThere s also the moral hazard risk of the optimistic Drawdown message We already have too much climate complacency Yet reading Drawdown suggests that the market and human creativity is enough or almost enough to reverse climate change without mass mobilization and radical changes in how we invest regulate consume and organize our daily Betraying Beauty (Vegas Titans, livesI write this critiue with hesitancy given the enormous trust I have in Paul s good intentions and the admirable efforts of his 200 person working group But we need to do so much and much faster than what Drawdown describes So I hope Paul will integrate that perspective into his continuing efforts at showing us the best path forward The most informative book I have ever read I already have a copy this was for my daughter Everyone should read this book and join the movement So muchiterature on global warming is focused on the catastrophic and apocalyptic conseuences of our actions This "Book Flips It To What "flips it to what can do and gives hope for the future through some science based tangible realistic improvemen I have spent a couple of hours with this book read some sections in depth I was crazy Vrolok looking forward to reading it and it does contain what I think may be new ideas for many people I am thankful for thatThe book has two glaring deficits that make it a work that may ultimately harm our ability to move forwardThe first is a strikingack of solutions that are ocean related The ocean is the great temperature and atmospheric regulator of our planet It reuires abundant animal ife in order to do much of the job of creating oxygen and seuestering carbon for instance the trophic cascade driven by whale populations down to plankton numbers I am no expert but I cannot imagine that. Ibed here some are well known; some you may have never heard of They range from clean energy to educating girls in ower income countries to and 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
