We Are the Weather Some people reject the fact, overwhelmingly supported by scientists, that our planet is warming because of human activity But do those of us who accept the reality of human caused climate change truly believe it If we did, surely we would be roused to act on what we know Will future generations distinguish between those who didn t believe in the science of global warming and those who said they accepted the science but failed to change their lives in response In We Are the Weather, Jonathan Safran Foer explores the central global dilemma of our time in a surprising, deeply personal, and urgent new way The task of saving the planet will involve a great reckoning with ourselves with our all too human reluctance to sacrifice immediate comfort for the sake of the future We have, he reveals, turned our planet into a farm for growing animal products, and the consequences are catastrophic Only collective action will save our home and way of life And it all starts with what we eat and don t eat for breakfast.

  4. 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 people to stop eating meat and dairy products is di 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 people to stop eating meat and dairy products is disadvantageous to the cause because most people will not completely stop eating meat or dairy Trying to enforce drastic changes in people does not work because it seems hopeless But little things can be done and collectively those little things can make huge differences Foer suggests something that he believes can be a reasonable goal not eating any meat except for at dinner This change alone woul...

  5. 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 pleasure isseductive than long term survival Many 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 pleasure isseductive than long term survival Many of us understand that immediate action must be taken to slow, stop, and reverse climate change, but often use the excuse that individuals cannot make a difference, that change must come from government regulations, well Jonathan Safran Foer is here to call you out His proposal is not to commit to being vegan or vegetarian for the rest of your life, but to break it down and consider your next meal, then the next He urges us not to make your emotionsurgent than the...

  6. If you ve read EATING ANIMALS, this is that but with a focus on being vegan, as opposed to strictly vegetarian It feels manipulative because it s meant to though none of the things Foer says are outrageous nor out of line.

  7. An excellent book based upon scientific information, mostly ignored or not believed by the public Not sure if this book would change many people s mind, but still I suspect that some might A worthy addition to someone s environmental library.

  8. Excellent book
