by Nancy H. Taylor

Book Reviews

"The key word in this title is community -- we need towns and cities efficient enough to slow down global warming and durable enough to ride out what we can't prevent. What a handy guide for getting started!"
--Bill McKibben, author, The Bill McKibben Reader

"If you have been looking for a way to do your part to create a sustainable future, look no further. This book is as good as it gets -- a concise guide to personal actions that can make a huge difference when combined with the actions of others. Read it and put its suggestions into effect."
--Dan Chiras is a green building consultant, public speaker, teacher, and author of numerous books on green building and residential renewable energy, including The Homeowner's Guide to Renewable Energy, The New Ecological Home, and The Solar House

"Global warming is the most urgent challenge facing the inhabitants of Earth today. The solutions are greater energy efficiencies and utilization of clean, renewable energy sources. In Go Green, Nancy Taylor has provided a tremendous public service in offering a highly useful easy-to-understand menu of choices we can all implement as we take major steps toward combating global warming and leading the way toward a healthy, safe, sustainable future."
--Rocky Anderson, former mayor of Salt Lake City

"If you've seen the movie, heard the lecture, and read all the reasons why you should be scared witless about global warming, here's what you can actually do about it -- read Nancy Taylor's book. It's short, succinct, well-organized, practical, and upbeat."
--Robert Collier, visiting scholar, Center for Environmental Public Policy, University of California at Berkeley
