Publisher's summary

“Useful and relevant. . . . Greenberg’s writing is clear and concise. Each section starts with easy tips . . . then wades into bigger, trickier concepts.” —New York Times Book Review

A celebrated writer on food and sustainability offers fifty straightforward, impactful rules for climate-friendly living

We all understand just how dire the circumstances facing our planet are and that we all need to do our part to stem the tide of climate change. When we look in the mirror, we can admit that we desperately need to go on a climate diet. But the task of cutting down our carbon emissions feels overwhelming and the discipline required hard to summon. With The Climate Diet, award-winning food and environmental writer Paul Greenberg offers us the practical, accessible guide we all need. It contains fifty achievable steps we can take to live our daily lives in a way that's friendlier to the planet--from what we eat, how we live at home, how we travel, and how we lobby businesses and elected officials to do the right thing. Chock-full of simple yet revelatory guidance, The Climate Diet empowers us to cast aside feelings of helplessness and start making positive changes for the good of our planet.

Critic reviews

“Useful and relevant.... Greenberg’s writing is clear and concise. Each section starts with easy tips...then wades into bigger, trickier concepts.” (The New York Times Book Review

“Some strong and rational suggestions for reducing your personal impact here—and when you're eating smart, you'll have the energy to do the movement building we need to change systems too! This book integrates the individual and the societal in a powerful way.” —Bill McKibben

“[The Climate Diet] will guide you from inaction to purpose . . . The book may be brief, but it's solid, practical, educational, and motivating. It stays true to the goal Greenberg professes in the introduction—'to help you get from wherever you are right now to a better place in the future.' It takes a formidable, looming crisis and breaks it down into manageable chunks that infuse the reader with a sense of hopefulness. There's profound satisfaction in doing something, rather than nothing.” Treehugger
