Nearly 40 years after Francis Moore Lappé wrote Diet for a Small Planet—one of the first books to take a hard look at the environmental and health problems caused by the meat industry—her daughter Anna Lappé has written a book exposing how the industrial food system is contributing to climate change. In Diet for a Hot Planet, Anna describes how are diets can be a crucial tool in the fight against global warming—and she gives a recipe for what an environmentally sustainable diet should look like, including more locally grown foods and eating less meat.
