"In Diet for a Hot Planet, I plunge into the heart of this era’s newest food fight with a simple message: If we are serious about addressing climate change, we have to talk about food." Anna Lappe  

The food industry has, so far, managed to stay out of the climate-change hot seat. Most of us don’t think about our lunch when we think about global warming.

Yet, the food system is responsible for as much as one-third of all greenhouse gas emissions. These emissions are particularly alarming because the food sector is the biggest driver behind methane and nitrous oxide emissions, which have global warming effects many times more powerful than carbon dioxide.  

The climate crisis at the end of your fork and what you can do about it!

 

Anna Lappé is a widely respected author and educator, known for her work as an expert on food systems and as a sustainable food advocate. She is currently the head of the Real Food Media Project, a new initiative to spread the story of the power of sustainable food using creative movies, an online action center, and grassroots events.

With her mother Frances Moore Lappé, Anna co-founded the Cambridge-based Small Planet Institute, an international network for research and popular education about the root causes of hunger and poverty. The Lappés are also co-founders of the Small Planet Fund, which has raised nearly $1 million for democratic social movements worldwide, two of which have won the Nobel Peace Prize since the Fund’s founding in 2002.

Anna’s writing and advocacy have earned her numerous accolades. Anna holds an M.A. in Economic and Political Development from Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs and graduated with honors from Brown University. Among other consulting and advisory roles, Anna is an active board member of Rainforest Action Network and an advisor to the International Fund to Amplify Agro-Ecological Solutions. Born in Yonkers, she lives in the Bay Area with her husband and daughters.
