Today’s inspiration is from environmentalist, entrepreneur, and author Paul Hawken: “The first rule of sustainability is to align with natural forces, or at least not to try to defy them.”

Hawken is the founder of Project Drawdown, a nonprofit with the mission to reverse global warming as quickly and safely as possible. He also edited Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming, a compilation of 100 solutions to reverse global warming based on meticulous research by scientists and policymakers.
