Is it possible to live within a truly sustainable carbon footprint, while still living well? How can you make a real difference?

Many of us are trying to live a little more sustainably, but what would it mean to live within a truly low carbon footprint? Karl Coplan will share his personal journey to cut back on carbon without giving up on quality of life. Coplan will talk about the joys and challenges of a year on a truly sustainable carbon budget―eating a Mediterranean-style diet and enjoying travel and vacations while avoiding air travel.  He will explain how to distinguish between actions that make a real difference and others that are less significant. Coplan believes that there does not have to be a trade-off between the ethical obligation to maintain a sustainable carbon footprint and the belief that life should be fulfilling and fun.   

Karl Coplan is professor of law at Pace University, where he directs its Environmental Litigation Clinic. He is also a member of the board of directors of Waterkeeper Alliance. To purchase this book, click HERE.
