"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 hasso farmanaged to stay out of the climate-change hot seat. Most of us dont think about our lunch when we think about global warming.
In Diet for a Hot Planet, Anna plunge into the heart of this eras newest food fight with a simple message: if we are serious about addressing climate change, we have to talk about food."

We are washing away the foundations of our existence on every front. It is high time we move from crashing about on the planet like a bull in china shop and find a way to go forward with intent. We must find systems of living based on sustainability. The systems and tools exist, it is up to each of us to adopt them.
