Project Drawdown Solutions
Project Drawdown is a coalition of scientists, researchers and advisers from all over the world with a goal of providing solutions to reverse global warming. In April 2017, Drawdown released a book of 100 solutions with the potential to do just that.
On this page you will find a new solution each month. We encourage you to apply them to your own life, at work and home, so that we may be able to achieve reversal before it is too late.
