What is well worth considering is economist/ecologist Paul Hawken- edited book DOWNDRAFT, a New York Times best seller, featuring “The MOST COMREHENSIVE PLAN EVER PROPOSED TO REVERSE GLOBAL WARMING.”
In this book, an international coalition of professionals, researchers and scientists have come together to offer a set of realistic and bold solutions to global climate change. In this book, one-hundred techniques and practices are described — some of them well known — others never heard of, ranging from ways to utilize clean energy to utilizing education of young women in low income countries to distribute information on solutions that exist already and are economically viable and time-tested.
If deployed collectively on a global scale over the next thirty years, these techniques represent a credible path forward in reaching DRAWDOWN, that point in time when greenhouse gases in the atmosphere peak and begin to decline.
A copy of this book should be in every home worldwide, and rather than being left to political means, implementation of these practices should be accomplished by loving, caring, self-reliant communities, practicing sustainability on a world wide basis.
Left up to politicians, money will continue to buy influence,and the survival of the planet and human life on it will be the sole concern not of those who will continue to live here, but of those who can afford the price of a ticket on a rocket ship to Mars with billions left behind.
