Who I'd like to meet:"By most accounts, New York is already America's greenest city, simply because people live in smaller homes and rely on public transit. But with the help of Ben Jervey's comprehensive guide, New Yorkers can now take that unconcious environmentalism and extend it with a few powerful modifications of their ways of life. If they do, then someday Gotham will join places like Oslo and Stockholm as truly ecological metropolises." -Bill McKibben, author The End of Nature
"Ben Jervey's book is the bible of green living in New York City. With this book you can 'be the change' instead of whining about the status quo." -Ben Harwood, President, Eco-Logic.com
