The Foundation for Climate Restoration (F4CR) is going global with new international projects to evaluate, develop and achieve global scale impact to restore the climate.
Chief Executive Officer, Rick Parnell said, “Solutions already exist to not just slow down climate change but to actually restore the Earth to the state it was in before the Industrial Revolution. These solutions are proven and effective. I am immensely proud to join an organization where I can encourage governments, NGOs, businesses and individuals around the world to join forces and get behind scalable, sustainable technologies that are our best hope for a healthy and habitable planet in the future.”
The F4CR’s goal is to return atmospheric CO2 to historically safe levels of less than 300 parts per million by 2050. To reach that target, the Foundation is working with a cross-section of global partners around the world on a range of commercially viable projects.
Physicist and F4CR Founder and Chairman, Peter Fiekowsky said, “Our mission is to take specific solutions that have been in development for years and rapidly scale them up, by 2030, to the level required to effect real change. For example, Blue Planet Ltd.’s limestone aggregate solution can scale to remove a trillion tons – a trillion tons – of CO2 from the atmosphere in 30 to 40 years.”

Kimble in Washington D.C., Ocean Expert Advisor Dr. Emma Roseline in Madagascar, and European Strategist Paul van Engen in Amsterdam, we know we will be able to fulfill our mission with strategic coordinated action on a global scale.”
F4CR’s solutions are intended to work hand-in-hand with other efforts to reduce emissions and adapt to the changing climate.

Executive Director of the Earth Day Network, Kathleen Rogers said, “The Foundation’s goal of getting atmospheric CO2 down to 300 parts per million by 2050 is ambitious but we believe it is essential and achievable, and we are committed to doing everything in our power to help. Rick brings more than two decades of highly relevant global experience and there could be no better person to take on this challenge.”
As the new CEO, Parnell is responsible for the direction and day-to-day operations of the F4CR and its sister organization, the Climate Restoration Alliance (formerly Healthy Climate Alliance).

F4CR Board Member, Melinda Kimble said, “Environmental problems often do not begin and end inside the borders of just one country. The Foundation for Climate Restoration recognizes that global action is essential to address major transboundary climate issues. I know Rick has the dedication and experience necessary to bring people and solutions together.”

About the Foundation for Climate Restoration and Climate Restoration Alliance
The non-profit Foundation for Climate Restoration began with a question: How might we reverse global warming and safely restore the climate and the Arctic ice by the year 2050? Today, we work with partners around the world – connecting the right people to the right ideas and resources – to launch financially viable Climate Restoration projects and, through the Climate Restoration Alliance, develop and deliver education, networking and advocacy programs.
