We can stem the flow of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. But with atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations now at 425 parts per million, our window of opportunity for doing so is starting to close. To avoid climate catastrophe, we need to head in the right direction as quickly, safely, and equitably as we can. And that means being strategic about every bit of time, energy, and funding we put into adopting climate solutions.
We invite you to watch this video of our live webinar with Project Drawdown’s executive director Jonathan Foley to learn about the Drawdown Roadmap—a new science-based plan for halting climate change while there’s still time.
The plan is based on the recognition that, to avoid climate catastrophe, we need to head in the right direction as quickly, safely, and equitably as we can. And that means being strategic about every bit of time, energy, and funding we put into adopting climate solutions.
Jonathan Foley, Ph.D., is the executive director of Project Drawdown—the world’s leading resource for climate solutions. He is an internationally-renowned environmental scientist, sustainability expert, author, and public speaker. His work focuses on understanding our changing planet and finding new solutions to sustain the climate, ecosystems, and natural resources we all depend on.
