Based on research by leading scientists and policymakers from around the world, *Drawdown* evaluates one hundred of the most substantive solutions to reverse global warming. Some are well known; while others you may never have heard of. They range from clean energy like soloar and wind to educating girls in lower-income countries to land use practices designed to pull carbon from the air. The solutions exist, and many communities have already begun enacting them with skill and determination. If deployed collectively on a global scale over the next thirty years, they represent a credible path forward, not just to slow global warming, but to reach drawdown, the point in time when greenhouse gases in the atmosphere reach a peak and begin to decline.
Has the human game begun to play itself out? Thirty years ago, Bill McKibben offered one of the earliest warnings about climate change. Here, he broadens the warning — the entire human game, he suggests, is endangered. *Falter* examines converging trends: as climate change shrinks the land where humans can live, new technologies like artificial intelligence and genetic engineering, offer new threats to humanity. Moreover, rigid economic and ideological factors continue to keep us from bringing them under control. Drawing on his experience building 350.org, the first global movement to combat climate change, McKibben concludes with possible solutions to save the planet and oursleves. We’re at a bleak moment in human history. McKibben believes we’ll either confront that bleakness with action or watch our civilization slip away.
