A new book of solutions to reverse global warming says family planning and girls’ education are among the most powerful. Population Media Center agrees.

Paul Hawken, an environmentalist and best-selling author, set out to answer a nagging question: “Do we know what we need to do in order to arrest and reverse global warming?” The result is his latest book, Drawdown: The most comprehensive plan ever proposed to reverse global warming. Hawken’s ranking of the most effective climate solutions available featured one that many environmentalists don’t think about, one he certainly didn’t expect to find at the top of the list, and one that thrills Population Media Center: the rights of women and girls.
