    This has some great stuff in it but unfortunately the most comprehensive plan includes a lot of really stupid crap About half of the book is a pretty good summary of real solutions and the other half is basically a bunch of crazy techno fixes On the good side are things like ecosystem restoration with particular emphasis on the importance of maintaining healthy oceans, peatlands and mangroves , agroecology, managed grazing systems, silvopasture, indigenous land management, lower methane emi This has some great stuff in it but unfortunately the most compr...

    You cannot save the planet with just a carbon tax The math of climate change screams that at you Even if you were able to wipe out 27 trillion in fossil fuel assets, there s already too much carbon in the air We have created a peak carbon dioxide parts per million that humanity has never seen since we diverged from Chimps We have to as the title suggests drawdown the very carbon in the atmosphere.And yet, the possible solutions are all very politicized, at least in the United States Di You cannot save the planet with just a carbon tax The math of climate change screams that at you Even if you were able to wipe out...

    To be very honest, I only skimmed this book There are interesting tidbits galore here But glancing over it, I said to myself, let s see what they have to say about carbon fee and dividend, or cap and trade, border adjustment, or whatever economic pricing schemes they may prefer as a means of actually getting people to DO something to reduce their carbon footprints It was not there Nowhere in this book do I find any mention of real world methods that would actually compel humans through the l To be very honest, I only skimmed this book There are interesting tidbits galore here But glancing over it, I said to myself, let s see what they have to say about carbon fee and dividend, or cap and trade, border adjustme...
