Project Drawdown uses different scenarios to assess what determined, global efforts to address climate change might look like. Drawdown Scenario 1 is roughly in-line with 2˚C temperature rise by 2100, while Drawdown Scenario 2 is roughly in-line with 1.5˚C temperature rise at century’s end. In Scenario 1, reduced food waste is #1 individual solution.
