Drawdown – 60 Minutes with Paul Hawken

by Arturo Herrera on August 3, 2017

Project Drawdown is facilitating a broad coalition of researchers, scientists, graduate students, PhDs, post-docs, policy makers, business leaders and activists to assemble and present the best available information on climate solutions in order to describe their beneficial financial, social and environmental impact over the next thirty years.
The book, Drawdown, reports on this research to map, measure, model, and describe the 100 most substantive solutions to global warming.  It is the first detailed plan to reverse global warming
Drawdown hit #9 on the  NYT bestseller in its first week, stayed on the best seller list for four weeks, and is in its 4th printing. It was the first book on the environment or climate to attain that ranking in over 25 years.
For each solution, Drawdown describes its history, the carbon impact it provides, the relative cost and savings, the path to adoption, and how it works. The goal of the research that informs Drawdown is to determine if we can reverse the buildup of atmospheric carbon within thirty years. All solutions modeled are already in place, well understood, analyzed based on peer-reviewed science, and are expanding around the world.
 
Security and Sustainability Forum Managing Director, Edward Saltzberg, and American Renewable Energy Institute  Chairman and CEO, Chip Comins, in a 60 minute webinar and conversation with Drawdown Editor and Project Drawdown Executive Director, Paul Hawken.

I am delighted Paul will be joining to nurture this conversation! And I am totally shocked that there is no “food or agriculture, or land management” in the list of choices for the industry I represent and am engaged in. (or did I miss something?) An indication there are way way too few land managers/stewards with boots or bare feet on the ground! I believe this must change! Looking forward to paul’s wisdom.

I work for the gas utility in Chicago to implement their energy efficiency program. I want to know how I can use my position to more aggressively push efficiency in the city and how to tie efficiency to GHG reductions and accounting. I don’t have access to the city’s emissions tracking information but would like to know how to form a partnership to track reductions and target parts
Of the city for energy efficiency that would result in the most significant reductions of emissions
