Drawdown review Ø eBook or Kindle ePUB Paul Hawken æ 3 read & download New York Times bestseller The 100 most substantive solutions to reverse global warming based on meticulous research by leading scientists and policymakers around the worldAt this point in time the Drawdown book is exactly what is needed; a credible conservative solution by solution narrative that we can do it Reading it is an effective inoculation against the widespread perception of doom that humanity cannot and will not solve the climate crisis Reported by effects include increased determination and a sense of grounded hope Per Espen Stoknes Author What We Think About When We Try Not To Think About Global Warming There's been no real way for ordinary people to get an understanding of what they can do and w. This book is a catalog of the hundred or so technologies that could potentially draw down the carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases from the atmosphere The book was written by a couple hundred expert researchers in all walks of life Each technology is very well presented in a manner that is easy to understand by a non expert The book is very attractive flush with color photographs appropriate for each topic coveredEach technology is rated in terms of the amount of carbon that could potentially be removed from the atmosphere the net cost of the technology and the net savings When these numbers are too speculative for an educated guess that is mentioned The technologies are all ranked in terms of their potential for seuestering carbon Also since some of the technologies are inter related there is an effort made to prevent double counting the impactSome of the technologies are well known to most people while others are novel I was most interested in some of the agricultural topics Most surprising to me was silopasture This entails allowing animals mostly cattle but other domesticated animals also to feed in meadows with trees Silvopastures yield livestock per acre than grass pastures and seuesters five to ten times carbon than treeless pastures A related technology is the managed grazing of pastures by cattle This techniue vastly improves conditions of the pastures protects organic matter and the soil becomes porous and better able to absorb intense rainfalls As a result herbicides pesticides fuel and fertilizers can be reduced as well as veterinary costs And yet another agricultural techniue is known as agro forestry which is becoming widespread It is positively transforming the Sahel DesertI was astounded by the statistic that there are 18500 miles of high speed rails in the world But only 28 of these rail miles are in the United States On the one hand high speed rails are very expensive and on the other hand they actually do not reduce carbon emissions very much The emphasis in most of the book is that these are practical economical technologies ready to be implemented There are net savings from most of these technologies seuestering carbon can be cost effective and help the atmosphere at the same time At the end of the book there are a handful of future technologies that have not yet reached the stage of practicality each of which has a bright potential for the futureWhile I read the book end to end it is actually of a reference book a very fascinating reference book After reading the introductory sections each topic is self contained and can be read in isolation without losing the meaning The metal planet relationship A study of celestial influence reached the stage of practicality each of which has a bright potential for the futureWhile I Lord Tedric Alien Realms A star book read the book end to end it is actually of a 6 Verses That Can Change Your Life reference book a very fascinating No Limits Brutal Master #2 reference book After Lets Be Just Friends Just Friends #1 reading the introductory sections each topic is self contained and can be Liar Liar read in isolation without losing the meaning
