In Drawdown, entrepreneur Paul Hawken and colleagues introduce an ambitious project to build a social movement around a science-based plan to reduce the concentration of green­house gases in the atmosphere. The new volume is a handsome collection of short essays identifying what Hawken and his collaborators believe to be the 80 most ef­fective actions that can jointly reduce emis­sions and sequester atmospheric carbon in soils and vegetation.
