We Are the Weather
Jonathan Safran Foer
Most books about the environmental crisis are densely academic, depressingly doom-laden, and crammed with impersonal statistics. We Are the Weather is different — accessible, immediate, and with a single clear solution that individual readers can put into practice straight away.
A significant proportion of global carbon emissions come from farming meat. Giving up meat is incredibly hard and nobody is perfect — but just cutting back is much easier and still has a huge positive effect on the environment. Just changing our dinners — cutting out meat for one meal per day — is enough to change the world.
With his distinctive wit, insight, and humanity, Foer frames this essential debate as no one else could, bringing it to vivid and urgent life. (From Hamish Hamilton)
We Are the Weather is available in Sept. 2019.
