The Climate Emergency threatens human civilization. All life-forms on the planet depend now on humanity to undo the harm it has done. Unfortunately, those who have been leading the charge to address climate change, such as Al Gore, have not been telling us the whole truth. They have continued to ignore its leading cause.
Food Is Climate gives us hope that the crisis can be addressed - in a way that will improve human health - but only if there's a grassroots movement to do the right thing, because clearly politicians and even environmental organizations have refused to lead.

"Climate change is real, it’s here now, it’s getting worse very fast, and the consequences if we don’t fully address it are certain to be utterly catastrophic. People like Al Gore, Bill Gates, and Paul Hawken see how terribly dangerous our situation is, but their proposals fall seriously short of what’s needed if we are to have a viable future. And that’s what makes this stunning and highly readable book by Glen Merzer so incredibly important. There are in fact steps we could take that would defeat climate change and save our world, and Glen makes it clear exactly what they are. This book is an extraordinary antidote to the hopelessness that many of us feel. But more importantly, it may very well present us with the heretofore missing key to solving what is probably the greatest problem ever to confront humanity." (John Robbins, best-selling author and president, Food Revolution Network)
"A very readable story of man's impact on climate, seeing through the 'clean energy' mantra that has most of us mesmerised. This story is how cutting down trees, degrading land, tripping the seas of their natural climate defence, has destroyed the natural world and climate, and how our ravenous appetites, particularly for red meat and dairy, are killing the systems that keep us alive. Merzer reveals how the work of Al Gore and others have misled us with a narrative that is blind to the real changes that are needed, and shows us the transformational power of trees, soils, and removing livestock. I strongly believe Merzer is right, and we need to get behind these ideas." (Gerard Wedderburn-Bisshop, former principal scientist, Queensland Government Natural Resources, Australia; lead scientist and founder, World Preservation Foundation)
"Food Is Climate is the only book in the world that discloses the complete truth about the relationship - and the timeline of discovery - between humans eating animals, climate change and our steadily declining chances for surviving much longer as a species. It shines a bright, embarrassing light on Al Gore, one of the few globally-recognized leaders who understand the complete truth about climate change - but lacks the courage to share that crucial knowledge with the public. Maybe this book will help to shame him into taking a global stand on the most crucial topic in the history of humanity. Leveraging his global fame and wealth, he could make a real difference by loudly, and urgently, sharing the truth with the public about the paramount importance of a rapid shift to plant-based eating throughout the world."
