Ep. 19 - Why "fighting" climate change isn't the answer - Paul Hawken

How Paul Hawken shows up? By inspiring others to practical solutions to reverse global warming.

How do you tackle a something that threatens not only human health but the health of our planet? That is a heavy subject, and one that is often talked about with an air of dread hanging over the conversation.

Paul Hawken thinks its doesn’t have to be that way. He offers, a practical and hopeful take on global warming in his book “Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming”

What is so refreshing and so helpful about Paul’s take on global warming is not just the specific actions he proposes but the way he thinks about the issue.

That viewpoint comes from a lifetime of innovation and creativity.

He not only founded Erewhon (air-ah-wahn), the first food company in the US to rely completely on sustainable agriculture, but he has served on the boards of Point Foundation, which publishes the Whole Earth catalogs, the Center for Plant Conservation, the Trust for Public Land and the National Audubon Society.

Paul outlines not only outlines some insightful approaches to reversing global warming but also gives a look into a mindset that will help us reach that goal.
