J.B. MacKinnon – Author of The Day the World Stops Shopping: How Ending Consumerism Saves the Environment and Ourselves

Consumption is the biggest driver of our environmental crisis,
more than the growth of population. The average person in a
wealthy nation is consuming 13 times as much as the average
person in a poorer nation. If you have 2 children in the US, it is
as if having 26 in a poorer nation. 

J.B. MacKinnon is an award-winning journalist whose work has appeared in The New Yorker, National Geographic, and The Atlantic, as well as the Best American Science and Nature Writing anthologies. He is also the author of four books of nonfiction, including the bestselling Plenty (with Alisa Smith), widely recognized as a catalyst of the local foods movement. He lives in Vancouver, Canada.
