We Are the Weather: Saving the Planet Begins At Breakfast

£16.99

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.

Description

‘A warning: this is a life-changing book and will alter your relationship to food forever’ – Alex Preston, Observer

‘Since I finished the book I have been following his advice. I hope others will too. The future of the planet is in our hands – or rather, it’s on our plates’ – James Marriott, The Times

From the bestselling author of Eating Animals and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close – a brilliant, fresh take on climate change and what we can do about it

Climate crisis is the single biggest threat to human survival. And it is happening right now. We all understand that time is running out – but do we truly believe it? And, caught between the seemingly unimaginable and the apparently unthinkable, how can we take the first step towards action, to arrest our race to extinction?

We can begin with our knife and fork. The link between farming animals and the climate crisis is barely discussed, because giving up our meat-based diets feels like an impossible ask. But we don’t have to go cold turkey. Cutting out animal products for just part of the day is enough to change the world.

The task of saving the planet will involve a great reckoning with ourselves – with our all-too-human reluctance to sacrifice immediate comfort for the sake of the future. But we have done it before and we can do it again. Collective action is the way to save our home and way of life. And it all starts with what we eat, and don’t eat, for breakfast.

With his distinctive wit, insight and humanity, Jonathan Safran Foer presents the essential debate of our time as no one else could, bringing it to vivid and urgent life and offering us all a much-needed way out.
