Just got a copy of Living Like Ed: A Guide to the Eco-Friendly Life by Ed Begley. Murdoc’s probably a bit more pro-environment than a lot of folks would expect, and I think the book looks decent. It’s got a lot of common sense-type suggestions that regular folks can implement for little or no cost to save money and energy.
My primary concern with energy conservation and generation has more to do with economics and foreign policy than with environmental concerns, but why not keep things a bit cleaner while saving a few bucks and denying cash to our enemies? No one likes pollution.
Especially this guy:
The book appears to be pretty well-written and though I haven’t watched his show on HGTV, Begley and his wife seem to be pretty personable and communicate their ideas in a way that non-eco-fanatics can accept. It’s important that some basic tips and ideas about energy conservation and environmental protection can be put forward without alienating 98% of the population, and this book seems to do a pretty good job.
