Reduce

There are so many ways you can help reduce carbon.  We will be adding to this site over time to include areas like transportation, HVAC, electricity applications, and many many more.  Champlain Maker Faire is soliciting project ideas and solutions.  See more here:  https://champlain.makerfaire.com/2020/02/24/go-rad-now/

Adapt

What are ways you can adapt to the effects of higher carbon.  We will add as we learn new effective strategies.  We suggest you look at these proven processes:

These are descriptions of the Resilience Hubs and Regeneration Corps
programs:

Resilience Hubs -
Community Resilience Organizations (CROs) and Building a Local Economy
(BALE) are collaborating to help communities launch Resilience Hubs -
spaces for local people to take climate action into their own hands by
relocalizing basic human needs like food, energy, and water, building
resilience skills, collaborating on increasing emergency preparedness,
intertwining ecological and social factors of the climate crisis, and
creating fun, celebratory events that bring people joyfully together.
Resilience Hubs are imaginative spaces that encourage people to think
differently, collaboratively incorporate many visions, and reconnect us
to our human-ness, while deepening our relationships to land, water, and
meeting our needs in our local communities.

Regeneration Corps -
This fledging program aims to build a framework and support system where
high school students can receive hands-on climate education, gain school
credit, build community, learn agricultural skills, and connect with
land while working closely with a network of nonprofits and climate
organizers.




Drawdown

What are the ways you can help stimulate accelerated drawdown of carbon?  Some examples include use of Biochar (also a carbon reduction process for HVAC etc.), fertile farming practices, accelerated growth of high carbon capture plants such as algae, technology that collects carbon.  Obviously removal and destruction of carbon capturing methods such as  trees - whether tropical or strip removal - is counter to accelerated capture.  More to come.
