Publisher's Summary

A radically new understanding of and practical approach to climate change by noted environmentalist Paul Hawken, creator of the New York Times best seller Drawdown

Regeneration offers a visionary new approach to climate change, one that weaves justice, climate, biodiversity, equity, and human dignity into a seamless tapestry of action, policy, and transformation that can end the climate crisis in one generation. It is the first book to describe and define the burgeoning regeneration movement spreading rapidly throughout the world.

Regeneration describes how an inclusive movement can engage the majority of humanity to save the world from the threat of global warming, with climate solutions that directly serve our children, the poor, and the excluded. This means we must address current human needs, not future existential threats, real as they are, with initiatives that include but go well beyond solar, electric vehicles, and tree planting to include such solutions as the fifteen-minute city, bioregions, azolla fern, food localization, fire ecology, decommodification, forests as farms, and the number one solution for the world: electrifying everything.

Paul Hawken and the nonprofit Regeneration Organization are launching a series of initiatives to accompany the book, including a streaming video series, curriculum, podcasts, teaching videos, and climate action software. Regeneration is the inspiring and necessary guide to inform the rapidly spreading climate movement.

* This audiobook includes a downloadable PDF with Avoided emissions in carbon dioxide equivalence, Organic carbon stocks, and the Acknowledgements.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Gigatons of positive steps to save the planet

Its not often that when finishing a book, you immediately take action to change your behavior, but after this one i did.
Firstly the book reveals the.fact that action does not have to be exclusively taken by Governments, actually, they are impotent at this critical stage. No, Action takes place with every one of us, using our behavior, and purchasing decisions to create the changes necessary...Why, because that's what got us where we are today.
The book has so much good data that its like drinking from a fire hose (If we had that much water). I selected a few simple changes to my way of life. After reading of the major damage to our boreal forests, and the destruction of trees, I looked at the Mega bags of monster paper towels that I consume for every wipe, and drying action. From Kitchen towels to tissues, to toilet paper, My goal is to eliminate them . I grew up with cotton hanky's, with dish cloths, dish towels. I just ordered my first batch of handkerchiefs, organic cotton of course, and am tentatively approaching the idea of installing a bidet. Something that appears to scare Americans.. we seem to have an unhealthy fear of our arses., probably need to get over it! But that would close the door on all paper products made from the Arboreal forests.
The other takeaway was leave the land alone. After removing most of the "Untidy" natural growth around my house, and puchasing my favorite ride on mower, I realize what i have done. I must learn to look lovingly on an untidy mess of weeds, cedars, scrubby bushes, realizing they are the habitat of life . So I'm going to let 1/3 of my "lawn" go back to nature. i could go on forever, but listen to the book, go to the website, Take control...Its your earth, You Screwed it up....You can fix it.

Required reading!

They should become either a single textbook set up with discussion points and questions at the end of each chapter or as a series of textbooks perhaps for younger students. It’s important that these many concepts, stories, Scientific Revelations And just basic information about our planet in our culture they put out in front of the public eye for all to take in and consider.

By in large, good information for every one to kno

A bit drawn out and redundant in places, but largely worthwhile. Spread word word.

The most important book to read!

Everyone must read this book! At first I had to skip around to chapters that resonate with me because I had a hard time relating to the first few chapters, but now I’m going back and filling in the rest. I find this book to be fascinating, inspiring and motivating. As an Atlanta city dweller I’m especially interested in what Paul revealed about transformations in urban planning, building construction (omg living walls!) clothing industry, healthcare, transportation, plastics industry, food and regenerative agriculture.
