Drawdown Roadmap: Science Framework to Accelerate Climate Solutions | Jonathan Foley | TEDxBoston
The 100 most substantive solutions to reverse global warming, based on meticulous research by leading scientists and policymakers around the world.
“At this point in time, the Drawdown book is exactly what is needed; a credible, conservative solution-by-solution narrative that we can do it. Reading it is an effective inoculation against the widespread perception of doom that humanity cannot and will not solve the climate crisis. Reported by-effects include increased determination and a sense of grounded hope.”
Per Espen Stoknes, Author, What We Think About When We Try Not To Think About Global Warming.
Remember, every small effort counts,
and collective action has the potential to drive meaningful change in the fight against
1. Reduce Energy Consumption:
Use energy-efficient appliances and lighting, unplug electronics when not in use, and adjust your thermostat to conserve energy.
2. Choose Renewable Energy:
If possible, switch to renewable energy sources like solar or wind power for your home or vehicle.
3. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle:
Minimize waste by recycling and reusing items. Avoid single-use plastics and choose products with minimal packaging.
4. Conserve Water:
Fix leaks, use water-efficient fixtures, and be mindful of water usage in daily activities.
5. Use Sustainable Transportation:
Walk, bike, carpool, or use public transportation to reduce your carbon footprint.

Beavers are Considered
Beavers play a crucial role in restoring ecosystems due to their unique behaviors. They create wetlands by building dams across streams, which helps store water and create habitats for various species. These wetlands improve water quality, prevent erosion, and recharge groundwater. Beaver dams also slow down water flow, reducing the risk of downstream flooding and allowing sediment to settle, which can improve overall ecosystem health. Additionally, the ponds created by beaver dams support a diverse array of plant and animal life, contributing to biodiversity. Overall, beavers are considered "ecosystem engineers" that positively impact the environment by promoting habitat creation and water management. Learn More...
Cows and Seaweed!
Yes, feeding seaweed to cows has shown promise in reducing methane production. Seaweed contains compounds, particularly a type of red seaweed called Asparagopsis taxiformis, that can inhibit methane-producing microbes in the stomachs of cows and other ruminant animals. These microbes, specifically methanogens, produce methane as a byproduct of digestion.
When cows consume small amounts of certain types of seaweed as part of their diet, the compounds in the seaweed can effectively reduce the activity of these methane-producing microbes. This, in turn, leads to a decrease in methane emissions from the cows' digestive process.
This approach is being studied and explored as a potential strategy to mitigate methane emissions from livestock, which are a significant contributor to greenhouse gas emissions and climate change. However, there are still challenges to address, such as ensuring that feeding seaweed to cows is sustainable, cost-effective, and doesn't have any negative impacts on the cows' health or the quality of their meat and dairy products.
Research is ongoing to refine the approach, develop practical solutions, and better understand the long-term effects of incorporating seaweed into the diets of livestock.
