The Carbon-Free Home: 36 Remodeling Projects to Help Kick the Fossil-Fuel Habit[]

Carbon-Free Home cover

With an endearing mix of down-to-earth practical solutions and funky DIY projects, this book provides readers with much-needed information on how to renovate habits and home to move closer to a zero-carbon existence. The Hrens, respectively a carpenter and a photovoltaic installer living in Durham, N.C., give specific and technical advice, based on their own experience, on how to lower energy use within and outside the house, with 36 projects ranging from simple and inexpensive activities like sealing drafts, resetting the water heater thermostat and planting potatoes in a barrel to more heavy-duty and costly tasks such as installing a green roof or a solar hot-water heater and replacing a lawn with a permaculture garden. Some projects, such as building an outdoor cob oven—which the authors themselves describe as time-consuming with low energy savings—will be of little interest to any but devoted backyard hobbyists. Converting from a flush toilet to humanure, which involves lugging five-gallon buckets of human waste to a compost pile on a weekly basis, is even less likely to be adopted by the urban dwellers the Hrens hope to influence. But just about anyone will find something useful to do in this book, and the detailed, clear and enlightening chapter on understanding home energy use is, alone, almost worth the purchase price.

The Solar Chef[]

The Solar Chef cover, 10-10-22

by: Rose Marie Kern

“The Solar Chef” is a southwestern recipe book full of recipes and instructions for cooking delicious meals using only sunlight and a solar box cooker. The author, Rose Marie Kern, a longtime member of the New Mexico Solar Energy Association, has collected recipes from Texas to Arizona. Kern’s book won honorable mention in the National DIY book competition and was featured in the Journal of Sustainability.

“Using a solar cooker brings a bright new element to food preparation,” says Rose. “Unlike conventional ovens, the cookers retain moisture – so roasts and casseroles do not dry out. They can be used to bake, roast, or slow-cook.” Proponents of solar cooking say that foods cooked in sunlight have a fuller flavor than most cooked conventionally. Mistress Rose’s book is written in a casual style, as though she is speaking to a friend. She shows a new way of blending culinary art with sustainable living attitudes. The book contains more than 90 recipes which extend from quiche to dessert.

Cultivating a Revolutionary Spirit[]

By Laura Snyder Brown & William Fleet Lankford

Cultivating a Revolutionary Spirit cover, 4-9-24

Stories of Solidarity, Solar Cooking, and Women’s Leadership in Central America. An endearing story about a US tenured physics professor, the inimitable Bill Lankford, who visited Nicaragua for two weeks in 1984 and stayed, in one form or another, for decades. It’s a heart-warming story about how organizations formed to spread solar ovens became vehicles for women to empower and defend themselves in repressive macho societies. But it’s also a refreshingly frank story about the ups and downs of organizations that depend on outsiders for financial support and guidance, and the ups and downs of organizations forced to ride the waves of enormous political upheavals.
