Summary
"Modern life is destroying this ancient planet, cooking the ice caps, feeding the storms, and killing off species. How can we reconcile our competing desires to protect the planet's ecosystems and preserve our modern way of life? How can we respond to climate-change deniers who mock the fact that global-warming activists use fossil fuels? In short, how can you live in a carbon-based economy without being justifiably called a hypocrite? In The Carbon Code, conservation biologist Dr. Brett Favaro provides simple answers to each of these questions. Favaro argues that anyone who lives by the carbon code will soon find that their lifestyle is aligned with their belief system. His code is based on three R's: Reduce, Replace, and Refine. In the first section of the book, Favaro outlines the science of climate change, laying out the structure and logic of the code of conduct he prescribes. The book then describes current and emerging carbon-friendly technologies and behaviors we can adopt in our daily lives. In the book's third and final section, he acknowledges that individual action is a "necessary but insufficient" step. To achieve global sustainability, Favaro argues, individuals must make the fight against climate change 'go viral' through conspicuous conservation. Favaro's Carbon Code is a tool of empowerment. It argues that people don't need to be climate change experts to be part of the solution. It encourages people to take ownership of their carbon footprint, and it says that a lifestyle of conspicuous conservation will cause governments and corporations to do the same"--
