Blog Update!
For those of you not following me on Facebook, as of the Summer of 2019 I've moved to Central WA, to a tiny mountain town of less than 1,000 people.

I will be covering my exploits here in the Cascades, as I try to further reduce my impact on the environment. With the same attitude, just at a higher altitude!

Next book club - vote now!

Affluenza: The All-Consuming EpidemicI'll be finishing up the posts for the Animal, Vegetable, Miracle book club this month and wanted to get the votes started for the next book club.

Here are the links so you can do some research:

Affluenza: The All-Consuming Epidemic
Garbage Land: On the Secret Trail of Trash
Heat: How to Stop the Planet from Burning
When the Rivers Run Dry: Water--The Defining Crisis of the 21st Century
Plenty: Eating Locally on the 100-Mile Diet
Deep Economy: The Wealth of Communities and the Durable Future
The Party's Over: Oil, War And The Fate Of Industrial Societies

Like I have done before, once voting slows down (or in about two weeks) I'll take the top three books voted for and hold another vote, unless there is an obvious winner. I'm hoping to start reading the next book in January. I'll make a decision in time to add the book to your Christmas list.

Sheesh, can't we have something a little more fun like, "How the Grinch Stole Christmas"? I need a little levity these days. :)

They are all such interesting choices. I think you could pick any of them and have it be a winner, but I voted for Affluenza since it has been on my to read list for some time now.

I'm voting for Affluenza, too. It sounds like an especially good read this time of year.

I read Affluenza last year - it is an amazing book. I voted for Plenty, because it is something we're learning more about right now.

But I'll read Afflenza again...and again....

Good choices overall. I'm so glad I found your blog!

Crunchy, I think you should pick the trash book, but I'm not actually voting because I have a PhD exam to read for, and don't plan on reading anything else. And it's not in environmental engineering. :(

Deep Economy seems interesting. (The poll isn't working for me at the moment so please add my vote).

I'm very excited that my apartment has finally reached 62 degrees (the temp when the heat is allowed to kick in). This is quite manageable, and with all my south facing windows its still heating up above that during the day without any effort on my part. Three cheers for solar heating!
