Description

"Relax," writes author Mary DeMocker, "this isn't another light bulb list. It's not another overwhelming pile of parental 'to dos' designed to shrink your family's carbon footprint through eco-superheroism." Instead, DeMocker lays out a lively, empowering, and doable blueprint for engaging families in the urgent endeavor of climate revolution. In this book's brief, action-packed chapters, you'll learn hundreds of wide-ranging ideas for being part of the revolution -- from embracing simplicity parenting, to freeing yourself from dead-end science debates, to teaching kids about the power of creative protest, to changing your lifestyle in ways that deepen family bonds, improve moods, and reduce your impact on the Earth. Engaging and creative, this vital resource is for everyone who wants to act effectively -- and empower children to do the same.

This witty and inspiring book has changed my life. Through painstaking research and vivid anecdotes, Mary DeMocker illustrates the actions parents and children can take--big and small--to ensure a livable future for kids like my 12-year old daughter. After I read The Parents Guide to Climate Revolution, we started to walk instead of driving to school; we learned to live with one car, shared homegrown organic vegetables and eggs with our neighbors, and frequented thrift stores instead of purchasing new clothes . . . all creative and simple ways to live more lightly on the earth with optimism. Even more important, we began to write letters to our public officials and march in environmental rallies, as DeMocker suggests. What a wonderful way to empower young people and model democracy in action. This book, with its short and entertaining chapters that can be read cover to cover or in random bits, gives busy parents like me just the kick in the pants I need to publicly protest our increasing reliance on fossil fuels in an educated and creative manner.
