Here are 3 of my favorite resources for understanding climate crisis:
1. Listen to “Outrage and Optimism” podcast:
The IPCC’s 6th assessment report highlights the need for immediate action to keep temperatures below 1.5 degrees Celsius, as per the Paris Agreement. There is a terrific podcast called “Outrage and Optimism” with Christian Figueroa which contains information about the Paris Agreement, scientific views and why it is so important. BONUS: IPCC Repoert: The tipping point for action
2. The Planetary Boundaries Methodology:
The planetary boundaries concept presents a set of nine planetary boundaries within which humanity can continue to develop and thrive for generations to come. Planetary boundaries: “A safe operating space for humanity” by Rockström and Steffen , 2009.
3. 100 Solutions for Climate Drawdown:
Project Drawdown presents 100 solutions for humanity to reach climate drawdown.
How can we help the world reach “drawdown”? the point in the future when levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere stop climbing and start to steadily decline, thereby stopping catastrophic climate change—as quickly, safely, and equitably as possible.
Project Drawdown is a nonprofit that reviews and evaluates climate solutions. A primary goal of Project Drawdown is to reduce emission sources, improve carbon sinks, and uplift nature’s carbon cycle in order to improve society. As part of the project’s Table of Solutions, Paul Hawken and Amanda Ravenhill provide advice on how to deal with climate change to organizations, cities, universities, philanthropies, policymakers, communities, etc. In the Project Drawdown table, solutions are also listed according to the amount of Carbon Dioxide that can be mitigated with their use.
