In this groundbreaking book, the New York Times bestselling coauthor of The Green Book Thomas M. Kostigen reveals the vital missing link in today's environmental crisis: how we as individuals are connected to the most tenuous geography on the planet. Despite the recent prominence of "green" issues in the news, the direct relationship between our actions and the earth is too often ignored. But the seemingly insignificant things we do every day have the power to literally alter the landscape in the ongoing battle to resuscitate the planet.
Thomas M. Kostigen is coauthor of the New York Times bestseller The Green Book. He writes the Ethics Monitor column for Dow Jones MarketWatch and the Better Planet column and blog for Discover magazine. He lives in Santa Monica, California.
