    ZERO-FIFTY Volunteers

    The creation of ZERO-FIFTY has been a mammoth undertaking, far too great for just two people. To assist us, over 100 people have volunteered their time over the course of the last four years - some for a few days, some for a few weeks, and some even for several months. We would like to say a big thank-you to all of our volunteers, as without their assistance, ZERO-FIFTY simply would not have been achievable. Our work at ZERO-FIFTY is not over yet though, and we are searching for even more people who are interested in volunteering their time to assist us. This includes managing our social media accounts, assisting with the sourcing, translations, creating visuals and designing infographics. As such, if you have a background in design, architecture or writing, and are interested in getting involved, please send us a message.

    Make no mistake, climate change is the biggest threat humankind has ever faced. If we continue to emit carbon dioxide at the current rate our planet could be beyond salvation in less than a decade. We need to act fast, and we need to act now, but what can we do? Most books and documentaries that tackle climate change only write about the problem, not the solution.

    ZERO-FIFTY bridges that gap by providing the first all-encompassing global solution to climate change. Written by David James-Arnold and Alexa James-Ratzlaff, ZERO-FIFTY starts by creating a vision of what our planet will look like if we choose to ignore the threat of climate change. The authors then graphically explain how our planet can dramatically reduce its energy consumption over the next 35 years. This includes showing how we can substantially reduce the amount of energy our buildings, vehicles and factories consume, all with minimal disruption to our modern lifestyle. Finally, the authors demonstrate how we can power our remaining energy demand using a combination of existing technologies and a selection of highly innovative urban energy generating towers.

    Soon to be released, ZERO-FIFTY will be available as an 800+ page book and as an IOS, Android and Windows App. A free online draft is also available on the ZERO-FIFTY website. Visit www.zero-fifty.com for more details.
