"After realizing the gaping hole between his convictions about climate change and his own carbon footprint, Kurt Hoelting embarked on a yearlong experiment to rediscover the heart of his own home: he traded his car and jet travel for a kayak, a bicycle, and his own two feet, traveling a radius of 100 kilometers from his home in Puget Sound"--From publisher description.
Will I have a compelling answer for my grandchildren when they ask:
"What did you do? How did you respond when our climate first started to come unraveled, when you knew at last you held our future in your hands?"
In this book, he provides an admirable answer - actions do speak louder than words. THis is a book that has mede me think and change some behavior.
I highly recommend reading The Circumference of Home.
