Solutions

Project Drawdown identified and ranked the top 100 solutions to reversing global warming after extensive research and modelling. There were the usual suspects such as Solar Power but also many surprising ones:

  • Refrigernat Management
  • Empowering Women
  • Food Waste
  • Regenerative Agriculture
  • Marine Permaculture

We have taken that list and supplemented it with other important solutions such as Divestment, Litigation and Financial Climate Risk Disclosure. For each solution we are creating a LinkedIn Group for people to gather

Here’s the list grouped in broad headings:

Each group will be working with the following objectives

  • 1. Assemble Volunteer Citizens, Scientists and Experts to find the solutions and develop implementation plans and policies that will fast track reducing greenhouse gas levels
  • 2. Educate the wider public and encourage them to decide for themselves whether we have a Crisis and whether they too should join the ranks of becoming ‘Climate Solutionists’
  • 3. Develop and refine our draft Climate Crisis Blueprint
  • 4. Gather information about existing projects and ideas that contribute to solving the Crisis
  • 5.  Develop a series of ‘Climate Crisis Solutions Blueprints’ that can be communicated and lobbied for to the Politicians, Influencers, Financiers, Businesses, Philanthropists and others who can get things done quickly
  • 6. Support the TED COUNTDOWN Summits to gather this influencer support
  • 7.Relentlessly push for collaboration and adoption of these action plans
