On “Food Talk with Dani Nierenberg,” environmental activist and founder of Project Drawdown Paul Hawken talks about his optimistic model to protect the climate amidst despair and fear in the conversation over climate health. In the early 2010s, “there was a wave of despair that washed over friends and activists—it was kind of like game over,” says Hawken. “That point in time when you give up and surrender is the opportunity for transformation. Game over actually sounded to me like game on.”

“Fear occupies your mind; blaming occupies your mind. You’re in an adversarial position with the world. But the thing that makes you happy is to do something that’s actually doing,” says Hawken.

Released in Drawdown (2017), the findings of the project ranks the top 100 most substantive solutions to global warming according to their financial, social, and environmental benefit.
