Worried about saving the planet? You should be! It's not as simple as it looks, and the constant barrage of planet-saving information seems to be increasingly contradictory. Dump the car and take the train? Not according to the British Transport Secretary, who notes that a few travelers on a rural diesel train are causing more pollution than if we gave them each a 4X4. Drinking organic milk? Well, those organic cows not only produce less milk, they heat up the globe with their methane emissions in the process!
"The Eco Worrier's Handbook" is the answer. It presents the green givens, and sets them against their counter-arguments in a pithy, graphic, illuminating style. It explodes the myths, cuts through the slogans, and offers you the ammunition to enter the green debate. There are suggestions for what to do for the best, but the objective is to provide the eco worrier with enough balanced information to enter the planet-saving battle fully armed.
