We are the Weather

By Jonathan Safran Foer

Climate crisis is the single biggest threat to human survival. And it is happening right now. And, caught between the seemingly unimaginable and the apparently unthinkable, how can we take the first step towards action, to arrest our race to extinction?

We can begin with our knife and fork. The link between farming animals and the climate crisis is barely discussed, because giving up our meat-based diets feels like an impossible ask. But we don?t have to go cold turkey. Cutting out animal products for just part of the day is enough to change the world.
