Burn: Using Fire to Cool the Earth offers bold new solutions to climate change that can begin right now! In order to rescue ourselves from climate catastrophe, we need to radically alter how humans live on Earth.
We have to go from spending carbon to banking it. We have to put back the trees, wetlands, and corals. We have to regrow the soil and turn back the desert. We have to save whales, wombats, and wolves. We have to reverse the flow of greenhouse gases and send them in exactly the opposite direction: down, not up. We have to flip the carbon cycle and run it backwards.
Fully developed, this approach costs nothing. In fact, it can save companies money or provide new revenue streams. This would be a new, circular economy in which energy, natural resources, and human ingenuity enter a virtuous cycle of improvement.
