Climate Restoration: A practical reality in the 21st century

Dramatic evidence of global climate change—powerful hurricanes, massive wildfires, deadly droughts, sea-level rise threatening coastal communities—has become our everyday reality. Many people are resigned to passing along a failed climate-control agenda to future generations. But what if we could restore the climate that has enabled humanity to thrive over millennia? This course will show how climate restoration can become a practical reality. We will focus on targeted interventions based on natural processes. The participants will learn, for instance, why plankton and limestone are climate heroes and how their restorative power can be put to work. Surprising strategies like iron fertilization for ocean health and methane oxidation to improve air quality will be presented, along with information on how these efforts can pay for themselves. We will share ways in which the individual, acting at a community level, can make a real difference. The instructors’ book, Climate Restoration: The Only Future That Will Sustain the Human Race, will serve as the text for the course.
