    This has some great stuff in it but unfortunately the most comprehensive plan includes a lot of really stupid crap About half of the book is a pretty good summary of real solutions and the other half is basically a bunch of crazy techno fixes On the good side are things like ecosystem restoration with particular emphasis on the importance of maintaining healthy oceans, peatlands and mangroves , agroecology, managed grazing systems, silvopasture, indigenous land management, lower methane emi This has some great stuff in it but unfortunately the most comprehensive plan includes a lot of really stupid crap About half of the book is a pretty good summary of real solutions and the other half is basically a bunch of crazy techno fixes On the good side are things like ecosystem restoration with particular emphasis on the importance of maintaining healthy oceans, peatlands and mangroves , agroecology, managed grazing systems, silvopasture, indigenous land man...

    To be very honest, I only skimmed this book There are interesting tidbits galore here But glancing over it, I said to myself, let s see what they have to say about carbon fee and dividend, or cap and trade, border adjustment, or whatever economic pricing schemes they may prefer as a means of actually getting people to DO something to reduce their carbon footprints It was not there Nowhere in this book do I find any mention of real world methods that would actually compel humans through the l To be very honest, I only skimmed this book There are interesting tidbits galore here But glancing over it, I said to myself, let s see what they have to say about carbon fee and dividend, or cap and trade, border adjustment, or whatever economic pricing schemes they may prefer as a means of actually getting people to DO something to reduce their carbon footprints It was not there Nowhere in this book do I find any mention of real world methods that would actually compel humans through the laws of supply and demand to change their way of life in a way that would prevent their grandchildren from living in a diminished world With all due respect, dear authors that is to say, zero respect we already know what the problem is and some of the potential solutions But people have been writing books with pretty pictures on this topic for 30 years and nothing has changed Here is yet another work that assumes all we need is to understand that climate...
