Overview

He has doggedly set about trying to do so from scratch, using his existing house. As a new father, he wants to do his bit to make sure that his son Charlie has a future on this planet. He has read lots of books, surfed lots of websites, asked lots of questions, and made lots of mistakes. He's tried everything from putting vegetable oil in his car to composting dog poo. This has left him with a broad knowledge of going carbon neutral, which he is passing on to you in this book.

Going carbon neutral means not contributing any carbon dioxide (CO[subscript 2]) to the atmosphere thereby reducing the ongoing problem of global warming. It is about recognising the problem, adjusting your lifestyle and taking measures to gradually reduce your carbon footprint.

An extra upside of leading a sustainable life is that you'll save money! If, for example, you have a sustainable heating system, you will never get a gas bill. That's an immediate and personal benefit - quite aside from saving the planet.
