Drawdown, The Book
A must-have if you’re even reading this
Project Drawdown (California, US)
Founded in 2014, Project Drawdown helps guide the world toward reaching “drawdown,” the future point in time when levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere stop climbing and start to decline.
The book, Drawdown, offers insights on emissions sources and natural sinks, and describes solutions arranged by category. Readers are able to find specific ideas under each category, such as transportation or buildings. In addition to the comprehensive list of solutions, the book ranks them by their potential for cutting greenhouse gases, with cost estimates and short descriptions. It takes the mystery out of tackling climate change, making it accessible and actionable by everyone. What you know, and what you do and buy, matters. Drawdown is the blueprint for helping you you understand why.
Since its 2017 publication, this New York Times bestseller has become a seminal text on climate solutions, used by cities, universities, corporations, philanthropies, policymakers, communities, educators, activists and more.
