Dr. Frank Lipman talks with environmentalist, entrepreneur, journalist, and author, Paul Hawken, about his latest book, Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed To Reverse Global Warming. Drawdown is that point in time when the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere begins to decline on a year-to-year basis.
Drawdown maps, measures, models, and describes the 100 most substantive solutions to global warming. Each solution is described, 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. As Paul says in the podcast, all solutions modeled are already in place, well understood, analyzed based on peer-reviewed science, and are expanding around the world.
