What if you were to rank 100 solutions to climate change? What would you expect to be the top 10?
Reducing meat consumption? Solar? Isolating our existing buildings?

What are the top 10 solutions to climate change?
The scientists at Drawdown.org has measured 100 solutions and modeled them to determine its carbon impact through the year 2050, the total and net cost to society, and the total lifetime savings (or cost).
Here’s a print screen of their data (source).
In this Ted talk below, Chad Frischmann goes into the existing solutions and explains which habits attribute to warming our planet the most.
Of course, he then elaborates on solutions like the use of renewable energy and better land management as well as some lesser-known approaches, like changes to food production, better family planning and the education of girls.

Drawdown is based on meticulous research that maps, measures, models, and describes the most substantive solutions to global warming that already exist.
