What you can do to fight global warming and spark a movement

August 8, 2007

A new book co-edited by a CNR alumna attempts to answer a question familiar to anyone concerned with climate change:

"What can I do?"

Ignition: What You Can Do to Fight Global Warming and Spark a Movement, co-edited by Sissel Waage, ESPM Ph.D. '00, features a wide array of authors ranging from activists to scholars to students, who each discuss what the average person can do to turn their private concerns into public action.

The book recently received a positive review in the LA Times.

Waage is an independent environmental and sustainability consultant in San Francisco with over 15 years of experience working on environmental, social justice, and sustainability issues in North America, Europe, and Africa. Prior to independent consulting, launched and directed the R&D Program at The Natural Step, an international advisory services and research organization focused on sustainable business.
