Description:
"Project Drawdown is the most comprehensive plan ever proposed to reverse global warming. Our organization did not make or devise the plan—we found the plan because it already exists. We gathered a qualified and diverse group of researchers from around the world to identify, research, and model the 100 most substantive, existing solutions to address climate change. What was uncovered is a path forward that can roll back global warming within thirty years." -- Drawdown Join MountainTrue for a discussion of this fascinating and optimistic approach to reversing global warming. We will meet for four weeks and address new solutions each time. It is free to attend the book study, but MountainTrue will not be providing copies of Drawdown. The book is available for $22 at Malaprop's bookstore in downtown Asheville.
