Climate change is the greatest threat the world faces. In his brilliant new book, We Are the Weather: Saving the Planet Starts at Breakfast, Jonathan Safran Foer demystifies the science and statistics about why we are in the midst of a crisis and discusses how one small change – not to eat meat before dinner – could help save the planet. Animal agriculture is a contentious topic, but Jonathan approaches it with insight and humanity.
Jonathan is the author of three critically acclaimed novels – Everything Is Illuminated, Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, Here I Am – and one previous book of non-fiction, Eating Animals. Hosted by Erica Wagner.
