Summary:
Our planet is warming because of human activity. Foer believes 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. Saving our home and way of life starts with what we eat-- and don't eat-- for breakfast. -- adapted from jacket
