Cooler Smarter: A must read

Based on a comprehensive two-year study of hundreds of consumer decisions by the Union of Concerned ScientistsCooler Smarter: Practical Steps for Low-Carbon Living is a new science-based consumer guide that offers the facts on what decisions make the biggest impact on reducing your carbon emissions and what decisions don’t add up to much. The experts at UCS debunk many eco-myths, like the importance of “food miles” or the superiority of all hybrid cars, as they provide the science behind the right decisions that will save money and help save the planet at the same time.
