An Introduction to DRAWDOWN and What You Can Do About It @ First Unitarian Universalist Church
Jan 14 @ 1:00 pm
An Introduction to DRAWDOWN and What You Can Do About It @ First Unitarian Universalist Church | Houston | Texas | United States

Our first goal in reversing global warming is drawdown. This is the point where the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere levels off and begins to decline. If we get moving, we could reach drawdown by 2050.  At this event co-sponsored by Green Building Resource Center and Houston Climate Protection Alliance, the Climate Action Team of First Unitarian Universalist Church will summarize the book, Drawdown, then break into groups to focus on particular solutions:  organic farming and land use, family planning, refrigerant management, or your favorite action issue.
