A word from the author and CarbonCurb Founder, Eric Wright:

Be a Climate Warrior is an information-driven, nonfiction book about climate change and American society. It is a motivational climate change toolkit that provides individuals guidance for how to contribute to broader climate initiatives while reducing their own carbon footprints. The book casts a blacklight over one’s life and their connection to society, illuminating the carbon-scrubbing opportunities that lurk everywhere.

 

The book contains two primary elements. Half of the chapters include excerpts and stories that are designed to empower individuals to establish broader roles in the climate battle. Some of these excerpts and stories are, for example, an introduction to the physical scale of the Earth's climate system and society's emissions, a toolkit for communicating with climate deniers, a story about the corruption within Missouri state government and the implications for the coal industry in the United States, and a message from a centenarian who is a lifelong environmentalist and historian.

 

The other chapters present 30 recommended actions which contain practical advice for how the average American can reduce their individual carbon footprint by roughly 40%. These 30 recommended actions are the detailed version of the 30 actions presented here on CarbonCurb.com, where you can use our online carbon footprint calculator to calculate your unique personal emissions and interactively reduce them. As two parts of your climate toolkit, CarbonCurb.com makes the book more interactive, while the book serves as a much deeper well of information, inspiration, and motivation.

 

Overall, Be a Climate Warrior delivers a broader message inspiring the reader to interface with society for the benefit of our climate. You can embark on the journey of becoming a climate warrior by altering your lifestyle, confronting corporations, and becoming more politically engaged. Small steps, smaller footprints. We're all in this together. 

 

Warmly,

Eric
