Now that we have celebrated, it is time to get to work (great time at the Big Picture last night). Time for us to remember that as Americans we have been and are extremely capable of greatness. So let’s be great once again and take actions that will enrich us. First on that checklist is doing something about our carbon footprints. And a great tool to help folks get started is a fairly new book called The Carbon-Free Home: 36 Remodeling Projects to Help Kick the Fossil-Fuel Habit by Stephen and Rebekah Hren.
This is a great book written by folks who understand the causes of global climate change and live full and happy lives in part because they embrace a shared goal of reducing their impact on the Earth. The book is well-written and realistically presented. It is a great read and tremendous reference and also acknowledges and deals with the fact that not all of us are homeowners and has suggestions for renters as well. Buy the book or get your librarian to order it and then start shredding carbon!
