The dangers of a warming world have been in the public eye for at least the last fifty years, and yet it wasn’t until 2016 that 191 countries came together to sign the Paris Agreement, committing to prevent global warming from exceeding 1.5 degrees centigrade.

Only two countries have targets consistent with that goal, and G7 countries do not even come close. The most asked questions by people are: What can I do? Where do I start?

Enter environmentalist, entrepreneur, and activist Paul Hawken. A leading voice in the climate movement. His new book is "Regeneration: Ending the Climate Crisis in One Generation." It weaves justice, climate, biodiversity, equity, and human dignity into a seamless tapestry of action, policy, and transformation.
