Book Review: How To Reduce Your Carbon Footprint by Joanna Yarrow
It wasn’t that long ago, really, when no one had even heard the phrase “carbon footprint”. One certainly hears it a great deal these days. But many of us, honestly, have no idea what it actually means. Joanna Yarrow can help with that. Yarrow, who is regarded as an expert on the concept of sustainable living has created a very informative and easy to use guide book that will tell you most all you need to know about How to Reduce Your Carbon Footprint.
This handy five and a half by seven inch paperback is extremely well laid out and organized. Most of the information is presented in concise one page lists and summaries, while facing pages feature illustrations and small boxes with facts and details.
Yarrow deals with a whole range of issues from the basics of explaining what one’s carbon footprint is and how it can be computed to useful specifics about everything from Compact Florescent Lightbulbs to air travel, food, solar power and many other subjects. This book would be excellent for the little informed to moderately informed consumer to learn about global warming and what each and every one of us can and must do to ameliorate it. While those who are well far along in erasing their carbon footprints may find little new information here, for the rest of us
How To Reduce Your Carbon Footprint is Highly Recommended.
