In the ten years after An Inconvenient Truth, environmentalist and writer Paul Hawken has put together a team of scientists, researchers, activists, and political leaders to form Project Drawdown, a term used to define a point in which greenhouse gases begin to decline.

“Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming” is the new book produced by the coalition. From family planning to green trucking, wind power to composting, Hawken and his colleagues propose a network of solutions to address the challenges of climate change. Larry Mantle sits down with the editor to talk about the surprising findings that tackle one of the biggest threats to humanity.

Guest:

Paul Hawken, environmentalist and editor of the new book, “Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming” (Penguin books, 2017)
