To achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement, strategic scaling of existing and emerging technologies and practices is imperative. A new “Powers of 10” (P10) logarithmic optimization framework presented here identifies potential optimal scales for implementing climate action strategies between a single individual and the globally projected ~10 billion persons by 2050. Applying a dataset of existing strategies from Project Drawdown, we find prioritizing community to urban-focused climate action strategies can complement top-down and bottom-up efforts and support rapid sustainability transformation.
