Product Description


'This book is the carbon-reduction bible. Accept no imitations.' - Mark Lynas, author of Six Degrees: Our Future on a Hotter Planet

'This is the definitive guide to reducing your carbon footprint.' - New Scientist

'Valuable ammunition for those who want to do something about global warming.' - The Guardian

'An excellent and readable repository of honest numbers and facts that everyone needs to know and understand; and a compelling and optimistic call to individual action.'- David J C MacKay FRS, Chief Scientific Advisor to the Department of Energy and Climate Change and author of Sustainable Energy - without the Hot Air

'All you need to know about your impact on the global climate and how to reduce it. From jet travel to jewellery, from standby power to packaging, this highly accessible book is chock full of eye-opening research and expert recommendations. Superb.' - Dave Reay, Edinburgh University, UK; Author of Climate Change Begins at Home and founder of Greenhouse Gas Online

'Goodall's definitive guide to personal carbon reduction leaves no stone unturned. On the journey to a low-carbon life, this book is essential reading.' - Eugenie Harvey, Director of the 10:10 campaign

'If you're fed up with reading about all the little things you can do for the planet and fancy getting stuck into some proper green living, this is the book for you.' - Your Environment (Environment Agency UK)

'As this admirable guide demonstrates so clearly, a low-carbon lifestyle can be elegant, fun, rewarding and save us all a lot of money - as well as the planet!' Jonathon Porritt, CBE (Founder Director of Forum for the Future and author of Capitalism as if the World Matters)

'Chris Goodall takes a no nonsense, financial approach to low-carbon living - what is the cheapest way to cut carbon emissions, what is practical and what is just wishful thinking?' - Peter Shield, Natural Choices

'Chris Goodall's thoroughly researched book sets out in detail how we can each help the planet pull back from the abyss - not through any high-powered international initiatives, but by ordinary individual actions in our daily lives. We ignore his advice at our peril.' - Robert Napier, Chief Executive WWF-UK

'...should be snapped up by schools whose teachers are already busily outlining the dangers facing our environment.' - John Izbicki, Education Journal 2007.

'an invaluable guide to halting climate change' - John Izbicki, Education Journal 2007.

'...this book has so much to offer each of us and is an important contribution in how we can reduce each of our emissions of greenhouse gases.' - Sherkin Comment 2007

'The book provides all the information needed for people and families to understand their impacts on the world's climate and we warmly recommend to all people interested in improving environment quality, for stopping the climate change and extreme weather manifestations.' -Iuliana Sava, Iasi Polytechnic Magazine

'This is an excellent excellent training resource and can be used by anyone who wants to make a meaningful impact upon reducing their personal carbon footprint.' - AJH, Eagle Bulletin, July 2010.

'Described as the carbon reduction bible (this is no exaggeration), the second edition of this extremely thorough and comprehensive book shows how Westerners can reduce their carbon emissions from around 14 to 2 tonnes per annum while saving money in the process' - The Scientific and Medical Network, 2010.

'Highly recommended.' - The Midwest Book Review

'Unlike most 'how to be green' books so freely available of late, this one goes a bit further by looking at not only one's choices, but also begins to unpack some of the underlying and systemic issues.' -IZWA

'The text is compelling reading for scientists, engineers, economists, academics, corporations and government decision-makers, even though it sets out to inform individuals. In a time of excessive public concern for and official statements on climate change, this book still stacks up as a source of vital information, primarily because of its fresh, stimulating and no-nonsense practical approach, concluding with a list of four steps for cutting direct emissions and eight steps for indirect emission reduction.' - W Alan Strong, Journal of Environmental Health Research
