In Drawdown (2017), edited by Paul Hawken, the team of researchers identified 55 categories (by my count) of renewable energy options that — if they are scaled over the next 30 years — would avoid more than 375 gigatons of CO2-equivalent greenhouse gas emissions, and would pay for themselves with almost $65 trillion of energy cost savings.
Drawdown shows that we have available to us now — today — great renewable energy options that avoid greenhouse gas emissions, that reverse global warming and that pay for themselves with energy cost savings.
What does it mean “if they are scaled over the next 30 years”?
What might the decision-making look like to adopt those renewable energy options over the next 30 years?
What might a decision to adopt those renewable energy options look like?
What might a decision-making process for adopting those renewable energy options look like?
What might a decision-making process look like for swiftly adopting those options, for accelerating adoption of those options, for scaling up adoption of those options — to reverse global warming?
These are questions that I ask — and do my best to answer — in my new book, You Can Reverse Global Warming: Designing a Method for Swiftly Achieving 100% Renewable Energy and Saving the Planet.
In Chapter 12 of You Can Reverse Global Warming, you’ll learn how creating a great decision—making process is the difference between swiftly scaling up adoption of those options, and failing to scale them up. It’s the difference between reversing global warming, and failing to reverse global warming.
If you go to my website at https://www.erikkvam.com/chap12-method-revealed-for-reversing-global-warming/, you can download my free guide — “Method Revealed for Reversing Global Warming” — showing you the difference between creating and not creating a great decision-making process.
This is why I say great renewable energy options need a great decision-making process. You need a great decision-making process if you want to swiftly scale up and accelerate adoption of renewable energy options. You need to swiftly scale up and accelerate adoption of renewable energy options if you want to reverse global warming.
In Chapter 17 of You Can Reverse Global Warming, you will learn how a great decision-making process creates a positive feedback loop for accelerating adoption of renewable energy options. Here’s what such a positive feedback loop — what I call an “Adoption Accelerator — looks like
An Adoption Accelerator engages the power of enthusiasm — your enthusiasm — to swiftly scale-up adoption of renewable energy options and reverse global warming.
You’ll learn more about what a great decision-making process looks like when you read my book, You Can Reverse Global Warming. You can take a “Look Inside” at the first 5 chapters of You Can Reverse Global Warming by visiting my website at https://www.erikkvam.com/look-inside/.
