Expert Answers to Everyday Questions About the Environment


From the authors of the leading environmental handbook Green Living, the best of E's nationally syndicated Q&A column, EarthTalk

Knowledge of environmental issues and sustainability is increasingly important as industrialization and climate change continue to wreak havoc on our ecosystems and our psyche. As temperatures rise—and icecaps shrink and storms lash our coastal areas into oblivion—being smart about carbon footprints, waste streams and consumer choices becomes increasingly important for all of us.

That’s where EarthTalk comes in.

EarthTalk gathers together the best of readers' questions on the environment and the best ways to live green and answers in a quick and easy guide for the average Joe (or Jane). Searching by subject or looking up questions in the index, readers can learn everything from the difference between wild and farmed salmon to the pros and cons of nuclear power. EarthTalk provides the essential tools and tips to living in harmony with the planet.
