                 4 Sessions:  (October 26, November 2, November 16)

                              Session 4: December 7  at 10 AM

Be prepared to re-examine what you “know” and how you feel when you think about global warming, read about it, speak about it, and powerfully engage with the very real threat to our planet, species and all species.  Join this courageous conversation based on fact-based optimism.  If you want a sneak preview, go to the Drawdown.org website and scan the short, readable summaries of these 80 existing solutions in 7 categories (Electricity generation, Food, Women & girls, Buildings & cities, Land use, Transport, and Materials).  Each solution reduces greenhouse gases by avoiding emissions and/or by sequestering carbon dioxide already in the atmosphere.  Each solution is measured and modeled to determine the carbon impact through the year 2050, the total and net cost to society and the total lifetime savings (or cost).  These solutions are all needed and have a cascading, beneficial effect on each other.  There is something of interest for everyone here! 

Lynne Waymon, one of the participants in the Intro. to Drawdown had this to say:  “It’s been hard for me to believe that we humans have the means and techniques at hand to reverse climate change.  Not slow it down.  REVERSE it!   Nothing new needs to be invented. Plenty of solutions are in place and in action now.   So our task is to help make the solutions real in our own lives and to help others see that reversing climate change is actually possible.  That’s why I’m excited about the Drawdown Workshop Series.”  

There is no charge and these sessions are open to the public.
