'Read this book. Saving Planet Earth starts right here, right now' Stella McCartney
From the bestselling author of Eating Animals, a brilliantly fresh and accessible take on climate change - and what we can do about it
'Climate change is the greatest crisis humankind has ever faced.
It is that straightforward, that fraught.
Where were you when you made your decision?'
It is all too easy to feel paralysed and hopeless in the face of climate crisis, but the truth is that every one of us has the power to change history's course. We have done it before: making collective sacrifices to protect our freedoms, our families, our way of life. And we can do it again.
In this extraordinarily powerful and deeply personal book, Jonathan Safran Foer lays bare the battle to save the planet. Calling each one of us to action, he answers the most urgent question of all: what will it take for things to change?
It all starts with what we eat for breakfast.
'Eye-opening' New York Times Book Review
'Safran Foer's new approach gives me hope' Observer
Read this book. Saving Planet Earth starts right here, right now
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.
A warning: this is a life-changing book and will alter your relationship to food forever
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
Safran Foer's new approach, measured and moderate, gives me hope
In a style rarely found in books about global catastrophe, [Foer] interweaves personal stories, bulleted factoids and a delicious serving of metaphor. The effect is dazzling.
Eye-opening . . . In this follow-up to his influential Eating Animals, [Foer] brings both personality and passion to an issue that no one has figured out how to address in a way that inspires an adequate response.
Foer's message is both moving and painful, depressing and optimistic
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
