Description

"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.

The author asks a profound question
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?"

I highly recommend reading The Circumference of Home.
