Corporate Reformer Touts 'Regenerative Development' At Malibu Event… Author, environmentalist and activist Paul Hawken, who has dedicated much of his life to sustainability and changing the relationship between business and the environment, says we need to immediately move towards regenerative development. “We are still cutting down trees to produce food inefficiently,” he said. Hawken, who is a leading voice on corporate reform and the author of the book Drawdown, leveled his greatest criticism of the night on corporate farming and antiquated agricultural practices. “Big Ag does not feed the world, it feeds Big Pharma,” he asserted. Drawdown maps, measures, models, and describes the 100 most substantive solutions to global warming in the categories of food, land use, building and construction, electricity generation, material extraction and management and transportation. Hawken says, “solutions are no longer important, they are crucial.” The event was produced by the City of Malibu and Pepperdine University's Center for Sustainability, and was part of the Malibu Library Speaker Series.
