Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming

Drawdown is an encyclopedic book of things that can be done to reduce emissions and global warming. There are dozen of topics that are described with details including financial costs and benefits. It does acknowledge that many things will pivot in unforeseen ways. Some "solutions" have already done that. ("Car sharing" is lauded as a possible help to reduce traffic pollution. However, Uber and Lyft have now pretty much pivoted to taxi services rather than car sharing.)

The book is very comprehensive. It covers changes in animal production, transportation, urban layout, forestry, fuel sources and many other areas that do not get much attention. It is a great "start" to the solution of combating human emissions. However, it will work best as a "living" work that will be updated as the world and technology are updated.
