Overview

In his newest book, award-winning environmental journalist David Steinman makes sense out of the tangle of issues surrounding climate change. He provides clear, simple steps we can all take to make more responsible environmental choices in our everyday lives, from the food we put on our tables, to the products we use in our homes, and the cars we buy. He shows, for example, how changing even a simple habit of driving to the grocery store to ordering food online can save almost 900 miles a year, reducing both traffic congestion and petroleum emissions. Steinman traveled the country from his home base in California through the United States to talk with farmers, businessmen, professors, housewives, counter-terrorism experts and many others to find the link between environmentalism, conservatism, patriotism and national security. He reveals how our reliance on petroleum-based products and chemical pesticides negatively impacts our health, our national security and our planet. He presents a number of fascinating anecdotes and case studies about people and companies working to live "green" — using ecological wisdom as the basis for their decision-making — in the process improving everything from their children's IQs to their company's bottom line.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Put good food on your table, put good products in your home, plant a tree, drive a cool car, stop being toxic-these are five of the 10 simplistic but generally sensible bromides espoused by health magazine publisher Steinman. He's earnest, sometimes even bombastic, about how an army of "green patriots" can individually and incrementally confront global warming by embracing a "carbon-neutral" lifestyle. The "good food" chapter harrowingly recounts a visit to California's Central Valley-the most productive agricultural land in the United States but also the site of pesticides and poisoned water that have sickened generations of farm workers. However, his solution-to buy locally, eat organically and patronize food producers who emphasize organic products-is still out of reach for most Americans. A chapter on the importance of trees in combating global warming starts with the big picture of Costa Rica's remarkable commitment to reforestation before narrowing its focus to a list of manufacturers providing recycled papers. The ethic of every-little-thing-helps infuses the book-the author even counsels such micro-acts as unplugging unused appliances that draw "standby" power. A lengthy resource guide provides tips on everything from organic food deliveries and eco-friendly furniture to recycled toothbrushes. (Jan.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

    A Call for Green Patriotism

    In Safe Trip to Eden, the author introduces an interesting concept called Green Patriotism, which is the call to Americans to protect our environment because it will ultimately strengthen our national security. He takes the readers on a trip across America and beyond (to the rainforest in Costa Rica, the San Juan Islands, the Adirondacks, etc.) and each place we learn something new about our current environmental state of affairs - the problems, what is being done by environmentalists to correct them, and how we can make choices in our own lives to support the solutions. The author emphasizes our power as consumers in a capitalistic culture -that each of our purchase decisions is like casting a vote. He also makes the point that environmentalism is not a partisan issue. While it has been associated with liberals, he gives a history of Republicans and environmentalism in chapter 9. The book is extremely comprehensive in that it discusses the presence of petrochemical toxins in food and home products, the evolving green car industry, a facinating Pentagon risk assessment report on global warming, natural medicine, the treatment of livestock, negative effects of underpricing in the marketplace, how to maintain a sustainable forest, and much more. Overall, it's a facinating, empowing and very educating read. I highly recommend it!
