Scientists’ Warning Foundation is on a mission to protect life and ecosystems on Earth by fostering an awareness of our responsibility as planetary stewards and through restoration and regenerative techniques. Restoring the climate requires a paradigm shift.
Climate restoration consists of a goal and associated actions intended to reverse the current trends of climate change and, on some timescale and trajectory, to restore the Earth system to a safe, sustainable and productive state, for the well-being of future generations and all humanity.
Types of Restoration Techniques Include:
Sustainability is the process of maintaining change in a balanced environment, in which the exploitation of resources, the direction of investments, the orientation of technological development and institutional change are all in harmony and enhance both current and future potential to meet human needs and aspirations.
