Written by Eric Sorensen and the staff of Sightline Institute, this pocket-sized read is concise and clever. In seven, easy to follow chapters, the writers cut to the core of some key issues behind global warming, such as: transportation, fossil fuel efficiency, renewable energy, and the information economy. The fun part is how they relate each complex issue to an everyday thing that can serve as a solution to climate change; my favorites were the clothesline and microchip. It’s inspiring and profound to learn how these little wonders can help save the planet. Pick up a copy ($9.95) and be sure to pass it along to friends and family. Save @ Amazon.
