Scientists say we need to reduce our use of fossil fuels by 80% or more to avert the most dangerous effects of global warming. But is such a drastic cut possible without totally disrupting our lifestyle? The short answer is yes as the contributors of this book have shown. They imagined a future where each home powers not only itself, but the cars surrounding it. They are doing this with no fumes, no soot, and no emissions, from a fuel source that will never run out or jump in price. They show this future is possible now as they are driving to net zero.
David Hrivnak, a GINI member from Kingsport, culminated a two-year effort to find individuals throughout North America that have undertaken the journey to become carbon-neutral (or carbon-negative). In Dave's self-published book, "Driving to Net 0: Stories of Hope for a Carbon Free Future", Hrivnak allows 15 individuals to tell their own story about how each of them became aware then active in the pursuit of becoming carbon neutral.
