Here is a list of some of the better ones that I’ve picked up:
- “The Green Book” by Elizabeth Rogers and Thomas m. Kostigenby. It is coined as the everyday guide to saving the planet one simple step at a time. Celebrities like Ellen DeGeneres, Cameron Diaz, Tim McGraw and others tell how they are making a difference for the environment.
- “True Green” by Kim McKay and Jenny Bonnin. This is a great and simple book about 100 ways you can contribute to a healthier planet. There is also a “True Green @ Work” version. This book is where I learned about sleep disorder, or phantom load.
- “Consumer Guide to Home Energy Savings” by Amann, Wilson, & Ackerly. I actually bought this book through ACEEE (American Council for Energy-Efficient Economy. It is a great reference book for all the latest SEER levels, insulation ratings, window labels, and much more.
- I recognize there are two sides to every story, which is why I also have read “Cool It” by Bjorn Lomborg which expresses skepticism to global warming. This book explains what resources we should dedicate to first in combating global issues.
