I started a job a year ago working in the field of Sustainability and it was nice to know there are others out there that struggle with the same issues as we do. However, I was hoping to gain some real world insight into how to overcome these issues and there wasn't any new information but to learn how to pick your battles. Also, I think the book was a little hard on Oberlin College and the Adam Joseph Lewis Center. I work in that community and that facility is still a great building and a great monument to the world of sustainability.
Fossil Fuel Free!
I believe this book is great for anyone who is taking a carbon neutrality journey and have been recommending it to my co-workers. I loved the humor and the experience of the journey. For those who are skeptical, it might not be a great first book to recommend as those who are skeptical need to first learn the reasons why it is important to live a life that is fossil fuel free. Going green and becoming fossil fuel free is not always easy but it can be a wonderful experience as you look back. This book helped inspire me and my fiance to also attempt to be fossil fuel free which is an endeavor. In fact, my fiance and I are moving to the community where I work and I'm only 400 feet away. Our goal is to reduce our cars to one and purchase a Chevy Volt so we can learn to become more carbon netural. Our location is in the heart of the community so we have access to just about everything we need within walking distance. My fiance is desperately searching for a local job as well so we can reduce our carbon emissions even more. I can and do listen to this book over and over again because of all the tips I pick up and just the humor of it all. Great book for those who have chosen to live a reduced carbon life. Meanwhile, the Oberlin Project is trying to achieve the goal of carbon neturality for the entire community by 2050 and supports of such efforts should take the opportunity to listen or read this book.
I loved Doug's struggle with weening his self off WalMart and trying to figure out if organic food stores like Trader Joe's are part of a fossil fuel free life. These are the same things my fiance and I struggle with too!
His determination to keep moving forward with his goals no matter how frustrating it was.
Yes only because I don't have time to read. I listen to this while I am getting ready for work and during my daily walks.
Yes I have and but not with Mark Victor together.
There are so many ideas that I want to find a print version
