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.
