Call in to speak with the host
Scott Cluthe has two guests tonight, including Suzanne Shaw, one of the multiple authors for a new release from the Union of Concerned Scientists that may surprise you with it’s insights in how to actually create that smaller carbon footprint everyone talks about.
While the routine decisions that shape our days - what to have for dinner, where to shop, how to get to work - may seem small, collectively they have a big effect on global warming. Based on an in-depth, two-year study by experts at The Union of Concerned Scientists, Cooler Smarter: Practical Steps for Low-Carbon Living presented by contributor Jeff Deyette, shows how to cut your own carbon emissions by 20 percent or more. Including chapters on transportation, home energy, diet, and personal consumption, Cooler Smarter offers science-based strategies for low-carbon living.
The Union of Concerned Scientists is a leading science-based nonprofit working for a healthy environment and a safer world. UCS combines independent scientific research and citizen action to develop innovative, practical solutions and to secure responsible changes in government policy, corporate practices, and consumer choices.
Scott follows with a humorous conversation with Eric Kester, and his newly released, That Book About Harvard. Eric writes of his journalistic voyage, “I graduated from Harvard in 2008, where I wrote a humor column for The Crimson. My experience as a freshman was either hilarious or traumatic, depending on who you ask, and I wrote a book about it. That Book About Harvard is published by Sourcebooks.
I am a featured writer for CollegeHumor.com, & The Boston Globe, and Dorkly.com, among other sites. I also write copy, and most recently I was the lead copywriter for the new website for The Middlesex School.”
It's good to talk.
