Publisher's Summary

Informative, lively, and compulsively listenable, Doug Fine's humorous and topical work chronicles his year embracing an environmentally friendly lifestyle. Vowing to grow all his own food, harness the sun's power for his electrical needs, and consume as little fossil fuel as necessary, Fine faces surprising obstacles at every turn as he discovers that going green is easier said than done.

Loved it!

Funny, interesting & important book about a regular guy that struggles to get off the grid, off oil and eat locally.

You should hop on youtube and search 'farewell my subaru' to watch the 'trailer' for his book.

My own efforts have been to drive a VW that runs on bio-diesel and switch to wind power.
