100 Solutions to Global Warming

Short thesis

Can we stop global warming in the next 30 years? According to the team at Project Drawdown, the answer is yes. We can keep the temperature of the Earth from rising past the critical mark of 1.5 degrees Celsius, by drawing down carbon out of the atmosphere and beginning the process of reversing global warming.

Description

Project Drawdown has identified 100 solutions that when implemented systemically could realistically keep us from catastrophe, and at the same time create the world we all want to live in. Led by Chad Frischmann, the global team of researchers carefully mapped and detailed 80 solutions that are already up and running around the world, and modeled how they might be scaled up over the next 30 years. The team also evaluated the potential of 20 "coming attractions" – future innovations that will accelerate progress even faster. The researchers assessed the financial and climate impact of solutions when implemented at scale by all levels of agency, from investors to city planners, business leaders to educators, and NGOs to individuals.

Taken together, these solutions provide a roadmap for the future we want by solving the climate emergency, and ushering in a new way of doing business.
