Discussion & Videos Hosted By Mei-Ling Shek

drawdown book cover- What are the most effective ways to draw down atmospheric greenhouse gases on a global scale, so as to arrest and reverse climate change?
- What are their costs?

In 2013, Paul Hawken - environmentalist, entrepreneur, author and activist – founded the Drawdown project, and 70 researchers from 22 countries came up with an inventory of solutions, after compiling literature reviews, and devising detailed climate and financial models. The seminal work is presented in “Drawdown : The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming”. Altogether there are 80 solutions listed, and 20 “coming attractions”. What are the top-ranking solutions that reduce atmospheric greenhouse gases on a global scale? Come to the meeting to find out how good your guesses are. Hint: If you cannot wait, visit http://www.drawdown.org.
