Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

You can change the world. Here's how.

Our climate is changing and human actions are the cause. Maybe you don't know why, or what to do about it. We do. In fact, we wrote a book about it (this book, the one in your hands). We'll harness your green intentions and push you beyond turning off the AC every once in a while. It's all in here:

  • how to keep the planet healthy
  • facts and info
  • real-life stories
  • suggestions and challenges
  • eco-tips from MySpace users around the globe.
Everybody who submitted a tip got their username in this book, btw.

Each of us has the power to make a difference—open this book, arm yourself with knowledge, and start now. (Seriously. What are you waiting for?)

Review:

"Printed on post-consumer-waste recycled paper with vegetable-oil-based inks, this guide to saving the planet practices what it preaches as it encourages teens to adopt green habits. Most of the suggestions here are obvious (skip the bottled water; carpool; take shorter showers), and they tend to be repeated. But repetition is not necessarily a bad thing; the presentation here, impressing readers with the need to think through the environmental impact of their actions, uses the examples of MySpace peers to encourage compliance. A steady parade of young environmentalists who collect 400 batteries in two weeks, or who start campaigns for safer cosmetics, or who beat major car companies in designing an alternate-fuel vehicle, and so forth, demonstrates that teens can and do help the planet. Ages 14-up." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:
