How to Live a Low-Carbon Life

Global warming is one of the greatest challenges facing us today--certainly the most significant threat to our planet. Scientists and environmentalists assert that we must change our behavior to stop or possibly even reverse this trend. Goodall states that each individual must change their behavior to accomplish this. He shows numerous simple ways to reduce your carbon consumption as well as ways to calculate your carbon footprint. Although this book focuses on British and other European appliances, transportation, and other daily conveniences, the ideas discussed here apply regardless of where you are living.
