Participants in the October meeting of Cannon Beach Reads will once again be using Zoom. The book that will be discussed on Wednesday, October 21, will be Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming, edited by Paul Hawken. Drawdown presents the best thinking of an international coalition of researchers, professionals and scientists seeking to address the problem of climate change. One hundred techniques and practices are described in this guidebook for decreasing the world’s carbon footprint.
Hawken has put together a book that has been described as a “magnificent achievement,” “a rigorous and profound important resource,” and a “beautiful, inspiring and deeply satisfying read.” Hawken is an environmentalist, journalist, author and entrepreneur. He has started and run ecological businesses, written about the impact of commerce on living systems, and consulted with governments and corporations on economic development, industrial ecology and environmental policy.
Mary Lloyd will lead the discussion, which will take place, via Zoom, on Wednesday, October 21, beginning at 7 p.m. Cannon Beach Reads plans to meet via Zoom videoconferencing on the third Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m. until in-person meetings are possible again. New members are always welcome. If you are interested in participating, contact Cannon Beach Reads coordinator Joseph Bernt at email@example.com.
