Inspirational Reading

 by Janet Storts


I first became aware of Paul Hawken in the 1980s when he was selling garden tools and writing books to convince businesspeople that you could make ethical decisions and still make a profit.


If we had all followed his trajectory of insight, study, and commitment to action, we would be in a much different place now regarding global warming.


The following two books, which Hawken edited, give both practical ways to influence climate and new ways to think about our relationships.


Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming

Regeneration: Ending the Climate Crisis in One Generation


In addition, a search for Regeneration Paul Hawken on YouTube will return more than one hundred presentations and interviews.


To find a source that is practical, inspiring, realistic, and thoughtful gives me hope that we can change our hearts and take action.
