"In the face of widespread fear and apathy, an international coalition of researchers, professionals, and scientists have come together to offer a set of realistic and bold solutions to climate change. One hundred techniques and practices are described here--some are well known; some you may have never heard of. They range from clean energy to educating girls in lower-income countries to land use practices that pull carbon out of the air. The solutions exist, are economically viable, and communities throughout the world are currently enacting them with skill and determination. If deployed collectively on a global scale over the next thirty years, they represent a credible path forward, not just to slow the earth's warming but to reach drawdown, that point in time when greenhouse gases in the atmosphere peak and begin to decline. These measures promise cascading benefits to human health, security, prosperity, and well-being--giving us every reason to see this planetary crisis as an opportunity to create a just and livable world"--Page 4 of cover.… (mere)

Admittedly, I failed to finish this book. Yet I'm convinced it was filled with a hundred practical recommendations on how man-made climate change impacts could be lessened or reversed in an economical way without forcing us all to change our lifestyles, become vegetarians, or without giving up our motor vehicles, furnaces, or air conditioners.

But as an audiobook user, I was unable to progress through the book at a pace which suited me, being held captive to the pace of the narrator. In the case of this book, I........found....... the .......... pace.......... of .........the..........book........to...........be..........frustratingly.............sloooooooow.

Patience isn't a virtue of mine, and I found myself anxious to get to the next point, and becoming bogged down in the details. The author would present each idea, one at a time, tell you where it ranks compared to other ideas, tell you the total cost of the idea in millions or billions of dollars, tell you the total cost savings of the idea in millions or billions of dollars, explain it, and go on to the next. I'm sure most of the ideas make perfect sense, and can be implemented in a cost saving way, but I'm unsure which governmental body or agency, or business, or organization, will be taking on each challenge to make it happen on a wide enough scale to allow it to make a difference. Perhaps the implementing bodies for his ideas were contained in his final chapters, I just lost patience and never got that far in the book.

The book lists a number of ways we can reduce carbon emmissions and reverse global warming. Very muchnfocused on technical solutions, of which some are not really delivering (increased deforestation in Brazil under Bolsenaro; higher car mileage in cities where companies like Uber are popular). The book also does not talk bout what needs to change in the way we consume (except eatling less meat) and in the current existing social relations. So an interesting list of solutions, but not a lot of depth or broader picture. ( )

Maybe the best title ever. It is what it says - the Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming. In it are 100 environmental practices, ranked from 1 to 100 as most impactful. Most take just two pages, include ample descriptions for the noob, and give a summarized breakdown of the numbers. Tons and tons of researchers and contributors worked to make this book and thousands of references, but it's stylized and written to communicate, not overwhelm. In short, it's brilliant, and one of the most hopeful (and needed) projects I know of.

For me, it felt like environmental science 101. Maybe you have, but I hadn't ever heard of Methane Digesters, Grid Flexibility, Silvopasture, or Utility Scale Photovoltics. Each are important for drawing down the amount of carbon in the atmosphere.

However, most important were the practical implications of the research. You might, "What can I actually do to reduce global warming?" This book is the "most comprehensive" answer to that question. So, things like adding solar panels, (eventually) trading our gas car for something electric, etc. everyone knows. Now it feels a little more pressing. But in particular, going to a plant based diet was (I believe) #3 or #4 most impactful practices. Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh has said, making the transition to a plant-based diet may be the most effective way an individual can stop climate change. I didn't realize this... and that doesn't even include the other reasons for going vegetarian.

Two others that surprised me were educating girls globally and family planning (#6 & #7), which go together. When we educate girls, we are improving the lives of families. Children are healthier, happier and fewer in number when girls are educated. This is vital!

Drawdown is also a non-profit, who happened to produce this wonderful book. Learn more at drawdown.org.

This is so important and I'm thankful for the work they're doing. ( )

Enlightening for sure.
Optimistic too.
Full of solutions and angles on the biggest problem we face.

Dry to read (it's a report, not a narrative)
And a big question at the end: What now? Who is going to pay and change the law before it's too late? ( )

An inventory of various approaches to reducing carbon emissions and mitigating global warning and climate change: brief introductions to some hundred technologies, adaptations, alternative energy sources, and so on, in many sectors: energy, engineering, construction, transportation, urbanization, agriculture, reducing deforestation, and so on. Very useful, giving a glimpse of the whole vibrant field of positive responses. ( )
