It seems like you could spend your entire life trying to be kind to the planet, and it still wouldn't be enough. maybe you grow your own organic vegetables, but you water them with a plastic watering can. you always remember your reusable coffee cup, but you worry about the air-miles the coffee beans have travelled.
if that's you, then you're a climate worrier. noted climate worrier colm o'regan has written this fantastic guide to how we can do our bit for the environment while still being kind to ourselves. dedicated to his father, a farmer with a farmer's unique, often contradictory perspective on the environment, this book is a charming insight into colm's perspective on the environment, on consumerism, and on his own life.
