Healdsburg SHED is extremely proud to host Paul Hawken, leading environmental thinker and editor of Project Drawdown, for a compelling community presentation in the Modern Grange. Project Drawdown presents the most comprehensive plan ever proposed to reverse global warming. It features the work of an international coalition of researchers and professionals, including dozens of advisors and contributors such as Berkeley Prof. Michael Pollan, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Elizabeth Kolbert, and 350.org founder Bill McKibben, who have come together to offer a set of realistic and bold solutions to climate change. The book presents the 100 most substantive, existing solutions to address climate change and outlines a path that can roll back global warming within 30 years.
