Waterstones Says

Foer’s concern about the processes of meat production informed 2009’s engaging Eating Animals. Now he turns his attention to the effect of animal slaughter on the environment in this urgent rallying cry to make vital changes to our collective diet. Written with Foer’s customary erudition and literary style, We are the Weather is an elegantly argued case for modifying meals the world over.  

Signed Edition

From the bestselling author of Eating Animals and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close - a brilliant, fresh take on climate change and what we can do about it

Climate crisis is the single biggest threat to human survival. And it is happening right now. We all understand that time is running out - but do we truly believe it? And, caught between the seemingly unimaginable and the apparently unthinkable, how can we take the first step towards action, to arrest our race to extinction?

We can begin with our knife and fork. The link between farming animals and the climate crisis is barely discussed, because giving up our meat-based diets feels like an impossible ask. But we don't have to go cold turkey. Cutting out animal products for just part of the day is enough to change the world.

The task of saving the planet will involve a great reckoning with ourselves - with our all-too-human reluctance to sacrifice immediate comfort for the sake of the future. But we have done it before and we can do it again. Collective action is the way to save our home and way of life. And it all starts with what we eat, and don't eat, for breakfast.

With his distinctive wit, insight and humanity, Jonathan Safran Foer presents the essential debate of our time as no one else could, bringing it to vivid and urgent life and offering us all a much-needed way out.

“Precise and considered”

A very precise, considered rumination of the environmental impact of our diet and what we might to do to stem this ongoing crisis. I was expecting a rabid polemic – this is certainly not that. For those who are... More
