Publisher Description

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.

Review

Foer's message is both moving and painful, depressing and optimistic Publisher's Weekly Foer's new book urges the reader gently towards incremental adjustments - the idea being that if enough of us observe them, difference can be made Monocle Safran Foer's new approach, measured and moderate, gives me hope Observer Jonathan Safran Foer has laid down an urgent challenge with this book. Thought-provoking, humane and incisive, We Are the Weather confronts our personal entanglement in the climate crisis through the food on our plates. A necessary book about the way we eat and the enormous difference our daily choices can make. -- Julian Hoffman 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 The Times A warning: this is a life-changing book and will alter your relationship to food forever Observer We Are The Weather: Saving The Planet Begins At Breakfast is optimistic not because Foer minimises the crisis, but because of his claim that ordinary people have a chance of ameliorating it . . . I have not had meat at lunch since I read the book, and that makes me feel even better than having solar panels. The Times Read this book. Saving Planet Earth starts right here, right now Stella McCartney
