Doug Fine, journalist, NPR contributor and green jeans, speaks at Centenary College on Thurs, March 12, 7 pm

Adventure journalist and NPR contributor Doug Fine will present a funny and engaging talk and slide-show about his efforts to live carbon neutral on his ranch in southern New Mexico, Thursday, March 12, beginning at 7 p.m. in the Whited Room of Bynum Commons. The event is free and open to the public, says Rick Delahaya.

At age 36, Fine decided "to see if a regular guy who enjoyed his comforts could maintain them with a reduced oil footprint," and bought a parcel of land, dubbed it the Funky Butte Ranch and dug right into his greener lifestyle. During this presentation, Fine demonstrates with humor and perseverance the hard-won benefits of his new lifestyle in rural New Mexico.
