In her book Diet for a Hot Planet, Anna Lappé discusses how today’s agricultural system is impacting global warming and what we can do about it.
Food’s role in the warming of our environment does not get enough attention but hopefully Diet for a Hot Planet will help reverse that. This theme was actually one of my five organic food trends that I predicted earlier this year.
Anna Lappé discusses how the huge amount of processed food we consume and livestock we raise, along with GMOs, millions and millions of pounds of pesticides and fertilizer, soil destruction and many other factors, contribute to global warming.
Diet for a Hot Planet is incredibly well-researched and informative, and is a must-read book for anyone who cares about organics and the environment. Anna Lappé, a fellow Brown University alum, has put out a very important piece of work.
