For the first time ever, an international coalition of leading researchers, scientists and policymakers has come together to offer a set of realistic and bold solutions to climate change. All of the techniques described here - some well-known, some you may have never heard of - are economically viable, and communities throughout the world are already enacting them. From revolutionizing how we produce and consume food to educating girls in lower-income countries, these are all solutions which, if deployed collectively on a global scale over the next thirty years, could not just slow the earth's warming, but reach drawdown- the point when greenhouse gases in the atmosphere peak and begin to decline. So what are we waiting for?

Reviews

A bold plan to beat back climate change based on solutions already within our grasp * Outside Magazine *
It will give you the best kind of hope, the kind that balances realism with radical vision . . . Drawdown stands out among the many recent climate books . . . This is a breakthrough book, and even its omissions are instructive. There really is a way forward, and these days, it's great to see this rather basic fact demonstrated with such astonishing focus and brio * The Nation *
