Dearest readers,

Diet for a Hot PlanetThank you to all who attended yesterday’s live chat with author Anna Lappé, who doled out informative answers to your most vexing food–climate change questions. (If you missed it, you can catch the replay.) But now it’s time to offer up some of your own insights on Lappé’s tome Diet for a Hot Planet: The Climate Crisis at the End of Your Fork and What You Can Do About It.

Pick your poison, and answer any or all of these discussion-starter questions in the comments below, or feel free to offer up your own query for other readers to weigh in on:

  • What examples have you noticed of spin or greenwashing in the food industry? Any particular companies or campaigns come to mind that got you steamed?
  • Do you think one can truly be an environmentalist and still eat meat?
  • What are you personally doing to reconnect nature with food (as in from the farm to your plate) for yourself and your family or community? Growing your own vegetables? Buying eggs from a local poultry farmer? Raising your own animals for meat?

Naturally,
Umbra
