From electric cars to recycling to organic food--it's all here! Uncle John puts a green spin on its fun facts, figures and trademark trivia.
Only Uncle John could make the Green Movement this much fun! This timely edition takes an even-handed look at the trials and tribulations (and downright goofiness) of environmentalism. You’ll learn how landfills operate, where plastic goes to die, how to understand food labels, how to save some green around the house, and the lowdown on all the alternative forms of energy currently being bandied about (even beer power).
