Faced with the seemingly overwhelming prospect of global climate change and its consequences, is there anything that a person can do to make a difference? "Yes, there is!" says Jason Czarnezki. Writing as a lawyer and environmentalist, he addresses the small personal choices that individuals can make in order to have a positive effect on the natural world. Czarnezki compellingly describes the historical and contemporary forces in the United States that have led to a culture of "convenience, consumerism, and consumption." He also investigates the individual decisions that have the worst environmental impacts, along with the ecological costs of our food choices and the environmental costs of sprawl. Ever aware of the importance of personal choice, Czarnezki offers a thoughtful consideration of how public policy can positively affect individual behavior.--Publisher's description.
