Banyen's Description: 

The New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Safran Foer re-evaluated his meat-based diet—and his conscience—in his powerful memoir and investigative report, Eating Animals. Now, he offers a mind-bending and potentially world-changing call to action on climate change.

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.

"Eye-opening… 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." ―Mark Bittman, The New York Times Book Review

"In We Are the Weather, [Foer] interrogates himself and his habits in order to help everyone face the planetary crisis… An earnest call to change in the face of climate change." —The Wall Street Journal
