About this book

A crucial piece of the conversation about climate change, "Diet for a Hot Planet "makes the disturbing connection between food production and global warming. Beyond what we already know about "food miles" and eating locally, the global food system is a major contributor to climate change, producing as much as one third of greenhouse gas emissions. How we farm, what we eat, and how our food gets to the table all have an impact. And our government and the food industry are willfully ignoring the issue rather than addressing it.

In Anna Lappe's controversial new book, she predicts that unless we radically shift the trends of what food we're eating and how we're producing it, food-system-related greenhouse gas emissions will go up and up and up. She exposes the interests that will resist the change, in particular the food industry, and the spin they generate to avoid system-wide reform. And she offers a vision of a future in which our food system does more good than harm, with six principles for a climate-friendly diet as well as visits to farmers who are demonstrating the potential of sustainable farming. In this measured and intelligent call to action, Lappe helps readers understand that food can be a powerful starting point for solutions to global environmental problems.
