No Impact Man
Colin Beavan talked about his book No Impact Man: The Adventures of a Guilty Liberal Who Attempts to Save the Planet and the Discoveries He Makes About Himself and Our Way of Life in the Process (Farrar, Straus and Giroux (September 1, 2009). In his book he documents the attempt by a New Yorker to have as small a carbon footprint as possible. He describes the year he and his family spent attempting to have no net impact on the environment. They attempted not to use electricity or transportation as starting points. Mr. Beavan described the experiment as educational in unexpected ways. He talked about how he became interested in the project, his philosophical reflections, topics such as planned obsolescence, renewal energy, green jobs, and global warming, and how people could become involved. He responded to questions from members of the audience. close
