In case you haven’t heard, there is a man with a family in NYC aiming to put us all to shame. Colin Beaven, or No Impact Man as he calls himself on his blog, is spending one year with his wife, two-year-old daughter, and dog, attempting to live without making a net impact on the environment. He is documenting his experiences daily, so check out the website often. In the future there will be a book and documentary film as well.
Feeling environmentally irresponsible? Well, Step It Up 2007 might help. Acting as an organizing hub for the National Day of Climate Action, 04.14.07, the website lists national gatherings, rallies, events, and a blog with frequent postings by Bill McKibben, author of The End of Nature and Enough: Staying Human in an Engineered Age. Throughout the day, links to the events will be posted. The aim is to “have the largest protest the country has ever seen, not in numbers but in extent.” To find a local activity, or list your own, click the link.
