Author of Diet for a Hot Planet featured in Conference Call Tomorrow (November 18)

While you may not think “global warming” when you sit down to dinner, our tangled web of global food—from Pop-Tarts packaged in Tennessee and eaten in Texas to pork chops raised in Poland, with feed from Brazil, then shipped to South Korea—is connected to as much as one third of total greenhouse-gas emissions. Livestock alone is associated with more emissions than all of the world’s transportation combined. Move over, Hummer. Say hello to the hamburger.  -Small Planet Institute on Anna Lappe's Diet for a Hot Planet
Interfaith Power & Light invites you to a conference call tomorrow, November 18, featuring author Anna Lappé. Just as her mother, Frances Moore Lappé's book, Diet for a Small Planet, was influential in launching the sustainable food movement, Anna's latest book, Diet for a Hot Plant: The Climate Crisis at the End of Your Fork and What You Can Do About It, is contributing to the climate change movement by highlighting how our current food system is driving climate change.

Anna is a regular guest on nationally syndicated radio shows, such as NPR's Weekend Edition, The Diane Rehm Show, and WNYC's Brian Lehrer Show. Anna's work has been featured in The New York Times, Gourmet, O: The Oprah Magazine, Domino, Food & Wine, Body + Soul, Natural Health, and Vibe, among many other publications.
