If you're like most people, you probably really do care about our future--and your children's future. But, like many folks, you may not have been a long-time environmental activist. And you may not have studied environmental subjects much in school, either. But that doesn't have to be a problem. If you really want to learn about these issues and understand how they affect us--and the Earth--this book can help.
I begin by explaining all the basics so you can understand the larger issues. Then, I introduce you to the Three Rs of the environmental movement: reduce, reuse and recycle, and the Big S--sustainability. We'll explore the hot new markets for renewable energy resources and how they can supply your future energy needs. We'll also look at transportation issues, living patterns, and population. In addition, I'll explain the exciting growth of "green plans" and why they are the wave of the future. Finally, you'll learn even more ways to get involved in creating a sustainable world.
Throughout the book I offer numerous suggestions on ways to help save the environment while you also take care of your daily household chores or go through your busy schedule at work. Or even when you're on vacation. In many cases, you'll be able to accomplish this while saving money at the same time. Save money, save resources, save the planet.About the Author:
