Paul Hawken, the acclaimed journalist, entrepreneur, and author shares how we can help change the course of Global Warming: 

"Drawdown is that point in time when greenhouse gasses peak and begin to decline on a year-to-year basis. It is the most important goal for humanity to undertake. It is not a daydream because Drawdown is based on research that maps, measures, and models solutions that are already in place. ... At its core, Drawdown is a clear and detailed case of what is possible. We are counting what counts. By collectively drawing down carbon, we lift up all of life."

Paul Hawken has dedicated his life to sustainability and changing the relationship between business and the environment. His practice has included starting and running ecological businesses, writing and teaching about the impact of commerce on living systems, and consulting with governments and corporations on economic development, industrial ecology, and environmental policy. He has written seven books, including Blessed Unrest, which have been published in more than fifty countries and twenty-nine languages. Natural Capitalism, coauthored by Hawken, was cited by President Bill Clinton as one of the five most important books in the world.
