Applying EA to climate change

I wrote a blog post on ap­ply­ing Effec­tive Altru­ism to cli­mate change. I used in­for­ma­tion from Draw­down.org as well as my own anal­y­sis. The re­sults show that many solu­tions that are of­ten pro­moted like high-speed trains, elec­tric ve­hi­cles, green roofs and oth­ers are ac­tu­ally very high-cost rel­a­tive to their CO2 re­duc­tion. Less known solu­tions like silvopas­ture, restor­ing trop­i­cal forests, and man­ag­ing food waste are ac­tu­ally much more cost effec­tive per gi­ga­ton of CO2 abate­ment.

I’m cu­ri­ous to get your thoughts on ap­proach and re­sults.
