How to Live A Low-Carbon Life





by Chris Goodall

Climate change is the greatest challenge facing humanity: drastic reduction of carbon emissions is vital if we are to avoid a catastrophe that devastates large parts of the world. Governments and businesses have been slow to act and individuals now need to take the lead.

The planet Earth can absorb no more than 3 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions each year for every person on the planet if we are to keep temperature and rainfall change within tolerable limits. Yet from cars and holiday flights to household appliances and the food on our plates, Western consumer lifestyles leave each of us responsible for over 12 tonnes of carbon dioxide a year. That is four times what the planet can handle.

Individual action is essential if we want to avoid climate chaos. shows how easy it is to take responsibility, providing the first comprehensive, one-stop reference guide to calculating your CO2 emissions and reducing them to a sustainable 3 tonnes a year.


'Valuable ammunition for those who want to do something about global warming."


"Chris Goodall's thoroughly researched book sets out in detail how we can each help the planet pull back from the abyss – not through any high-powered international initiatives, but by ordinary individual actions in our daily lives. We ignore his advice at our peril."
Robert Napier, chief executive of WWF UK
