"WorldChanging: A User's Guide For The 21st Century"

If you are waiting for solutions to global warming and climate change to be invented, the wait is over. At least that is what the folks at Worldchanging think. The organization "was founded on the idea that real solutions already exist for building the future we want. It's just a matter of grabbing hold and getting moving. "

To move us all in this direction, the folks at Worldchanging have a website and a book (see below) devoted to providing "tools, models, and ideas for building a bright future." Their content is broken in sections, including:
  • Stuff
  • Shelter
  • Cities
  • Communities
  • Business
  • Politics
  • Planet

On the website and in the book, there is information about various topics within each category as well as resources to go to for more information. For example, the Shelter category discusses green remodeling, lighting, going off the grid, furniture and home decor, etc.

"Worldchanging: A User's Guide For The 21st Century" is a virtual encyclopedia of information about anything green. It can either be read from cover to cover or by picking and choosing which topics are relevant.

In the Forward, Al Gore writes, "To build that future, we need a generation of everyday heroes, people who - whatever their walks of life - have the courage to think in fresh ways and to act to meet this planetary crisis head-on. This book belongs in the library of every person who aspires to be part of that generation."

One of the goals of the Sustainable Energy Alliance (SEA) is to recruit people to be part of this generation - the generation that decides to give hope to the future of the planet.

If you visit this website every once in a while or thumb through the book (click to purchase WorldChanging from every so often, you will learn that you have many options in making your life greener. And this knowledge, I hope, will be the first step toward continuous change!
