Project Drawdown: Solutions to Reverse Global Warming

Drawdown is when global greenhouse gases in the atmosphere begin to decline on a year-to-year basis.  It's also a nonprofit organization and a book.  Project Drawdown analyzes 100 solutions to rollback greenhouse emissions and comes to some surprising conclusions about what provides the most impact.  Our discussion will focus on the solutions within the sectors of energy, food, and women and children.

 
GUESTS:

Check out the list of 100 solutions by rank.  The objective of the solutions list is to be inclusive, presenting an extensive array of impactful measures already in existence. The list is comprised primarily of “no regrets” solutions—actions that make sense to take regardless of their climate impact since they have intrinsic benefits to communities and economies.

Katharine Wilkinson says global women's empowerment would directly help the fight against climate change.

The New York Times has an interactive quiz  "How Much Do You Know About Solving Global Warming?"

NHPR's Outside/In explored why population issues disappeared from environment politics as well as giving up meat and dairy.
