Guest Blog: Drawdown Celebrates One Year Since Publication; Heads, Hearts and Hands Keep Moving it Forward
Katharine Wilkinson, Senior Writer for Drawdown, joins us as this week's guest blogger. April 18th marked the one-year anniversary of the publication of Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming, and pull for the book’s message only continues to grow.
