Sept. 4, 2019: An Introduction to Drawdown with Crystal Chissell .

Crystal Chissell presents an Introduction to Project Drawdown in the first Sebastopol Carbon Conversation, on September 4, 2019 @ Sebastopol Grange. Crystal also provides an update on how the Drawdown resource ( with 100 solutions for reversing Global Warming ranked) is being used around the world to help shape Climate Action plans. And what new research directions the organization is pursuing – for example: modeling Oceans, Peace (ie. the cost of war), Reducing Consumption, and Equity. The first 30 minutes is Crystal’s presentation (after ~ 3 min Introduction by Tor), followed by Q&A from audience. In future Sebastopol Carbon Conversations, we’ll dig deeper into the specific solutions identified in Drawdown.
Drawdown solutions are available online and also in book format.
