I'm so glad I bought this book, because it made me think deeply as well as clarified for me how what I eat has a tremendous impact on climate change. A crucial point of We are the Weather is that fossil fuel is only one part of climate change, and that in fact, animal agriculture is one of the MOST significant contributors to climate change. Changing how we eat is a high impact activity in relationship to climate change, and one that each of us can start without waiting for governments or big industry. The details of this book are what make it powerful, as well as Foer's analysis of why human beings struggle to bridge the gap between believing in climate change, and doing what is necessary to combat it. A fascinating, enlightening, and empowering read.
