Late last year, Seth Godin invited me to join him as part of the first wave of volunteers to work on what was then a dream: creating The Carbon Almanac. I was eager to help, but I was thinking how daunting the task of writing an important book would be.
Seth said: “let’s get started!”
In much less than a year, an all-volunteer team now numbering in the thousands produced The Carbon Almanac, a defining, bestselling, and now iconic book about carbon and climate change.
We created a world record by hosting book signings in over 100 locations on 6 continents. We started several blogs, a daily email, produced a free photo album, and a free kids’ book. There are over 1,000 entries in our online footnotes so you can check our work.
All profits are being used to give away free books to non-profits, schools, and we’ve started sending copies to government officials including all members of the US Congress.
We didn’t just dream. We didn’t just talk.
We got started!
