No Impact Man Description

The Adventures of a Guilty Liberal Who Attempts to Save the Planet, and the Discoveries He Makes About Himself and Our Way of Life in the ProcessA guilty liberal finally snaps, swears off plastic, goes organic, becomes a bicycle nut, turns off his power, and generally becomes a tree hugging lunatic who tries to save the polar bears and the rest of the planet from environmental catastrophe while dragging his baby daughter and Prada wearing, Four Seasons loving wife along for the ride And that s just the beginning Bill McKibben meets Bill Bryson in this seriously engaging look at one man s decision to put his money where his mouth is and go off the grid for one year while still living in New York City to see if it s possible to make no net impact on the environment In other words, no trash, no toxins in the water, no elevators, no subway, no products in packaging, no air conditioning, no television .What would it be like to try to live a no impact lifestyle Is it possible Could it catch on Is living this way satisfying or less satisfying Harder or easier Is it worthwhile or senseless Are we all doomed or can our culture reduce the barriers to sustainable living so it becomes as easy as falling off a log These are the questions at the heart of this whole mad endeavor, via which Colin Beavan hopes to explain to the rest of us how we can realistically live a eco effective and by turns content life in an age of inconvenient truths..
