Natural climate solutions[edit]

Natural Climate Solutions

Open CO2[edit]

Open CO2 is a project to help crowdsource open carbon accounts for local communities worldwide. It can also be about carbon literacy, encouraging ourselves to learn more about what the available data might show. Open local carbon accounts would help make possible Participatory carbon budgeting. See separate article: Open CO2


Participatory carbon budgeting[edit]

The idea is to combine two other ideas: participatory budgeting W and a carbon budget for an area, typically a large town or city. See separate article: Participatory carbon budgeting

Emissions Reduction Community based currency schemes[edit]

A community based emissions reduction currency scheme is a C4 type local currency in which local currency issues are backed by the emissions reductions of the schemes members. The local currency, when accepted for trade by other members or local businesses, thereby rewards participants for their efforts at global warming prevention. These currencies may have various degrees of convertibility into carbon saved, renewable energy, or national currency. W

Project Drawdown[edit]

  • Drawdown, 100 solutions to reverse global warming

Project Drawdown is a climate change mitigation project initiated by Paul Hawken and climate activist Amanda Joy Ravenhill. Central to the project is the compilation of a list of the “100 most substantive solutions to global warming.” The list, encompassing only technologically viable, existing solutions, was compiled by a team of over 200 scholars, scientists, policymakers, business leaders and activists; for each solution the carbon impact through the year 2050, the total and net cost to society, and the total lifetime savings were measured and modelled.

Paul Hawken has edited the book Drawdown: The most comprehensive plan ever proposed to reverse global warming to support the Project. W
