The way we see it, it doesn't really matter if you believe in Global Warming or not. The bottom line is that it's our responsibility to educate ourselves about our actions & what effects that have on our world. "Do no harm" should be everyone's motto. That said, if you are a believer in Global Warming you will be nodding your head in agreement to most everything in this book. If you think it's a bunch of nonsense, you probably will believe she is another environmental wack or whatever. We are asking you non believers to remove the climate crisis view & just view it as this is what we are doing to our home. We can only hope that then it will cause a dawning within you to at least start making smarter choices.
The author makes sure to provide references to back up the information she provides. She also provides information about resources we can explore to further educate ourselves & "take action".
We agree with most of her views & already practice a whole heck of a lot of them. No, we're not patting ourselves on the back. It is hard & a lot of people treat us like we've lost our minds. We cannot give up & will do our best to show through action how easy it can be to live lighter.
The author encourages the reader to eat local, eat organic, support local farms. Now this doesn't mean the local Tyson chicken factory! But the local family farmer where you can shake their hand, see their birds/produce/honey. Are they using pesticides? Some are practicing Organic, but are not certified. Some farmers are beyond organic. She encourages us to grow our own food (novel idea hu?), cook for ourselves (now she's getting really crazy!), start a compost pile (really it just doesn't make sense to put twigs out for pick up & throw banana peels in the garbage & then go buy bags of potting/top/garden soil now does it?).
So please, read this book. Do not be fooled by the giant chemical companies. Chemicals are not our friends - unless you want to buddy up to cancer, autism, allergies, digestive disorders...
