Quindi il problema non sta nell essere convinti o meno dell esistenza del problema Sta nelle cose da fare Jonathan Safran Foer, come si capisce dal titolo, ha una proposta piuttosto convincente Intervenire su ci che mangiamo Sull impatto che il nostro sistema di alimentazione h 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.
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 is seductive 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 f 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.
Ieder individu kan het verschil maken, elk klein stapje is er weer een meer Schokkend maar hoopvol boek tegelijk Een boek waar je voor sommige stukken echt wel even voor moet gaan zitten, maar wat het dan zeker waard is Foer toont met verschillende onderzoeken aan hoe de mens de wereld en het klimaat onder druk aan het zetten is, n laat zien wat er zal gebeuren als we hier niet proberen met z n allen iets aan te doen Zoals Foer zegt en andere gerelateerde boeken tegenwoordig ook er k n daadwerkelijk wat veranderen als we allemaal bereid zijn hier iets voor te willen doen Mooi en maar o zo confronterend tegelijk
Excellent book 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 excep This book s strength was that it avoided the trap of the sing song y, self help Safran Foer makes a case that not eating animal products before dinner is the best thing individuals can do to stop global warming He discusses the pitfalls of the climate crisis narrative and also acknowledges the sacrifice to not eat animal products Fantastic read for anyone who cares about the climate crisis.
