Anna Lappé with a foreward by Bill McKibben

In 1971, Frances Moore Lappé’s Diet for a Small Planet sparked a revolution in how we think about hunger, alerting millions to the hidden environmental and social impacts of our food choices. Now, nearly four decades later, her daughter, Anna Lappé, picks up the conversation. In her new book, the younger Lappé exposes another hidden cost of our food system: the climate crisis.
While you may not think “global warming” when you sit down to dinner, our tangled web of global food―from Pop-Tarts packaged in Tennessee and eaten in Texas to pork chops raised in Poland, with feed from Brazil, then shipped to South Korea― is connected to as much as one third of total greenhouse-gas emissions. Livestock alone is associated with more emissions than all of the world’s transportation combined. Move over, Hummer. Say hello to the hamburger.
If we’re serious about the climate crisis, says Lappé, we have to talk about food.

In this groundbreaking book, Lappé exposes the interests resisting this conversation and the spin tactics companies are employing to deflect the heat. With seven principles for a climate-friendly diet and success stories from sustainable food advocates around the globe, she offers a vision of a food system that can be part of healing the planet. An engaging call to action, Diet for a Hot Planet delivers a hopeful message during troubling times.

Reviews
“Anna Lappé’s message is timely and empowering. Instead of waiting for politicians to do the right thing, we can make simple changes to our diet, enjoy it, and help change the world.” ―Eric Schlosser

“Nothing is more important than connecting the way we eat to global warming. After all, food is an everyday need for everyone. Anna Lappé shows us that eating with intention is our responsibility and our pleasure.” ―Alice Waters

“Anna Lappé’s Diet for a Hot Planet does for the present generation what her mother’s Diet for a Small Planet did for the last: empower us to think in a new way about how food affects our own health as well as that of the planet. Her inspiring book makes it clear that food choices matter to climate change and that each of us, voting with our forks, can make a real difference in ensuring a more sustainable food system. I want all my students to read this powerful book.” ―Marion Nestle

“In this tour-de-force, Anna Lappé provides readable, lively, and much-needed answers to question that all too few of us understand: how does our food affect the planet?” ―Raj Patel

「工場式畜産による環境汚染と健康被害の実態」

2010.11.28(10:26)

■アメリカ地質調査所の統計
米国地質調査所によると、米国における淡水の消費水量のうち80%以上は
農業に当てられ、その大半は工場式畜産場に当てられるという。
According to the US Geological Survey, more than 80% of the consumptive use of
fresh water in the country goes to agriculture, with the majority to industrial factory farms.

■ニューヨークタイムズの記事
三万頭の牛を飼育する畜産農場、一軒につき一日に百万ガロン近くの水が地下帯水層から引かれることもあり、結果として井戸が干上がり野菜や果物の生産を脅かしている。
One cattle farm with 30,000 cows can withdraw nearly one million gallons per day from an underground aquifer, resulting in wells running dry and threatening local vegetable and fruit production.

悲劇を忘れないで…

2010.11.26(12:20)

チェルノブイリ。原爆。

じいちゃんは戦争に行って、人を殺して…っていう話を聞いたことがあるけど、
もう亡くなってしまって、聞くことが出来ない。

子供達に、伝えていかなくてはいけないことだと思います。

悲劇を忘れないで下さい。同じ過ちを繰り返さないで下さい。」
