In a society more concerned with how to cope with existential dread than how to make actionable change to save the planet, a surprisingly large number of Americans identify as environmentalists. What can individual people do to lessen the human impact of the planet, though? This is not an easy question. Most research is focused on large-scale changes that go beyond anything an individual can accomplish, and people are left feeling defeated rather than inspired to make changes in their everyday lives. Change starts at home, and F Stuart Chapin III has assembled a book for people who want to learn more about climate change and, more importantly, he explains what they can do about it starting today. Grassroots Stewardship approaches our current situation with an educated sense of hope and positivity. This book emphasizes actions by individuals, rather than governmental or corporate institutions, to trigger transformational change. Readers will learn what they can do to most significantly transform their communities and the planet with more sustainable pathways.
