It’s not what we want to hear, but it’s what we need to hear.  This book explains the perils of climate change while also putting it into a new perspective. Many of us can’t believe what actually awaits us and this book explains why that is and how we can change. The author knows he is at fault too and makes this relatable for those who struggle with making the necessary lifestyle changes and their role in affecting climate change.

— Mikayla


Some people reject the fact, overwhelmingly supported by scientists, that our planet is warming because of human activity. But do those of us who accept the reality of human-caused climate change truly believe it? The task of saving the planet will involve a great reckoning with ourselves � with our reluctance to sacrifice immediate comfort for the sake of the future. We have, We Are the Weather, reveals, turned our planet into a farm for growing animal products, and the consequences are catastrophic. Only collective action will save our home and way of life. And it all starts with what we eat � and don�t eat � for breakfast.
