His book, Drawdown, The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming debuted April, 2017 as the #9 NYT bestseller. He is the founder of Project Drawdown, which worked with over two hundred scholars, students, scientists, researchers, and activists to map, measure, and model the one hundred most substantive solutions that can cumulatively reverse global warming by reducing and sequestering greenhouse gases. Drawdown is currently being taught in every grade level from 4th grade on up to MIT graduate school, published in 14 languages and is used and referred to by heads of state. His forthcoming book is entitled Regeneration: Ending the Climate Crisis in One Generation, and will be published April 2021 by Penguin.
