From the rear cover

Life on 1/10th the fossil fuels turns out to be awesome

A powerful reminder that it is possible -- and joyful -- to move away from fossil fuels, even in a society still in the throes of addiction.
BILL MCKIBBEN, author, Eaarth: Making a Life on a Tough New Planet

A vital message about how we can indeed be the change we need to see in the world if we are to avert a climate catastrophe.
MICHAEL E. MANN, Distinguished Professor of Atmospheric Science, Penn State University, co-author, The Madhouse Effect

WE ALL WANT TO BE HAPPY. Yet as we consume ever more in a frantic bid for happiness, global warming worsens.

Alarmed by drastic changes in the Earth's climate systems, the author, a climate scientist and suburban father of two, embarked on a journey to change his life and the world. He began by bicycling, growing food, meditating, and making other simple, fulfilling changes. Ultimately, he slashed his climate impact to under a tenth of the US average and became happier in the process.

Being the Change explores the connections between our individual daily actions and our collective predicament. It merges science, spirituality, and practical action to develop a satisfying and appropriate response to global warming.

The core message is deeply optimistic: a world without fossil fuels is not only possible -- it will be better.

Kalmus walks the walk for his kids, for the land, for our future --and he can help you do it too.
KELLY COYNE and ERIK KNUTZEN, authors, The Urban Homestead and Making It

What anyone can do to reduce climate impact -- and live a better life in the process.
RICHARD HEINBERG, Senior Fellow, Post Carbon Institute, and author, The End of Growth

PETER KALMUS is an atmospheric scientist at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory with a Ph.D. in physics from Columbia University. He lives in suburban Altadena, California with his wife and two children on 1/10th the fossil fuels of the average American.

About the author

Peter Kalmus is a climate scientist at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory with a Ph.D. in physics from Columbia University. At work he studies the physics of clouds in a changing climate, and at home he explores how we can address climate change while living happier, more connected lives. He lives in Altadena, California, a suburb of Los Angeles, with his wife and two children on 1/10th the fossil fuels of the American average. He enjoys orcharding, beekeeping, and backpacking. Peter speaks purely on his own behalf, not on behalf of NASA or Jet Propulsion Laboratory
