    This is one of those books the vast majority of the Western world should read, even though in many ways it really isn t a particularly good read The first couple sections are fine we re destroying life on our irreplaceable planet and it will take a massive and collective effort not unprecedented, as he shows us to overcome what we re doing Okay, I m in The best first, necessary step is to move away from an animal products bas

    Jonathan Safran Foer s new book, We Are the Weather Saving the Planet at Breakfast, sets some highly ambitious goals for its readers There is a great deal of responsibility to enact the social change needed to mitigate the current planetary crisis However, Foer avoids taking on a preachy tone in his writing instead, he weaves a convincing argument through the use of relatable anecdotes, historical facts, and clear analogies Through eas

    As a whole this is a fantastic book that outlines facts of climate change related to factory farming, and personal inner conflict associated with the desire to consume meat and dairy products, while playing our role in decreasing personal effect on climate change We believe that someday somewhere, some genius is bound to invent a miracle technology that will change our world so that we don t have to change our lives Because short term ple

    In We Are the Weather Foer suggests that a collective effort is better than no effort at all The book goes into details as to how American s all pitched in to help the war effort during WW2 and in the same way we can all pitch in to help climate change Most of this book explains that agriculture industry is one of the biggest contributors to climate change and that this is one area that we all can change in our lives Foer argues that telling

    Before starting my review, I need to acknowledge and thank Goodreads and FSG for this book which I received as a giveaway prize The book is poetic and politically charged He writes of climate change as a form of suicide that we are engaged in if we don t take action immediately He also discusses our reluctance to make the necessary changes that can stop this runaway train The most important change we must make, according to Foer and many experts , is to


  9. Emily Laga Emily Laga says:

    This book s strength was that it avoided the trap of the sing song y, self help Safran Foer makes a case that not eating animal products before dinner is the best thing individuals can do to stop global warming He discusses the pitfalls of the climate crisis narrative and also acknowledges the sacrifice to not eat animal products Fantastic read for anyone who cares about the climate crisis.


  10. Jarett Jarett says:

    Part Silent Spring, part Walden, Foer combines science and philosophy for a thorough and appropriately depressing read The point of the book isn t made until a healthy chunk into the text that people need to stop eating meat and dairy to curb climate change Foer is a masterful writer beautifully used metaphor and paradox to show what humans are capable of, for both good and evil He continues to return to the citizens efforts and sacrifices during WWII to show
