In Operation Sustainable Human, Chris Macdonald delivers a clear-cut series of critical changes everyone can make to help combat global warming and its negative effects. In order to provide the simplest and most effective solutions to people who want to act against the current climate crisis, Macdonald has whittled down the commonly found lists containing hundreds of points to four ‘action items’ that strike directly at the most significant causes of global warming. The food we eat, consumer psychology, political systems, and our methods of travel all play a substantial role in worsening global warming but implementing the basic changes Macdonald suggests can play a considerable role in turning the tide against global warming.
Macdonald proposes a simple yet optimized strategy to combat climate change. This strategy is based around life-style changes in four key areas and is concise and basic enough that anyone can implement it. Macdonald’s presentation of facts, with clear citations throughout, and direct discussion of the problem we all face when it comes to global warming and its side effects, such as plastic pollution, is highly readable while his encouraging tone helps combat the sense of being overwhelmed and incapable of combatting this crisis. Macdonald also busts several myths as to the contributing factors of global warming, as well as addressing the negative impact of these myths on the general population. Although the discussion of political systems and their impact is centered on the USA, the core elements are applicable worldwide. This short book packs a powerful punch as Macdonald not only provides an actionable strategy to combat climate change but the encouragement that even an individual person can make a difference.
