"As Anna Lappé reveals in this important book, we must be conscious of what we eat - not only for our own health, but for the health of the planet. When it comes to climate change, junk food may prove even more destructive than S.U.V.s. Lappé's message is timely and empowering." - Eric Schlosser, Fast Food Nation
Diet for a Hot Planet
by Anna Lappé
foreword by Bill McKibben
Bloomsbury, April 1 2010
The era of climate-change deniers may (almost) be behind us, but a new battle has just begun. As we grapple with global warming, we will face increasing controversies over which industries are most responsible for the greenhouse gases of most concern and which actions and policies will most help us mitigate the crisis.
In these heated debates, the food industry has–so far–managed to stay out of the climate-change hot seat. Most of us don’t think about our lunch when we think about global warming.
In Diet for a Hot Planet, Anna plunge into the heart of this era’s newest food fight with a simple message: if we are serious about addressing climate change, we have to talk about food.
