Produktbeschreibung
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.

Autorenporträt
Jonathan Safran Foer wurde 1977 geboren und studierte in Princeton Philosophie und Literatur. Sein erster Roman "Alles ist erleuchtet" war ein sensationeller Erfolg in den USA und machte ihn mit einem Schlag bekannt. Seitdem veröffentlicht Foer nicht minder erfolgreiche Bücher. Sein Roman "Extrem laut und unglaublich nah" beschreibt die Ängste eines neunjährigen Jungen, welcher seinen Vater bei den New Yorker Terroranschlägen am 11. September verliert.
Aktuell sorgt Foer für Debatten um Vegetarismus und zeitgemäße Ernährung mit seinem neuesten Buch "Tiere essen". Auf angenehm unbelehrend hinterfragende Weise nähert er sich den Problemen der industrialisierten Tierproduktion.
Jonathan Safran Foer war mit der Schriftstellerin Nicole Krauss verheiratet und lebt in New York.

Das meint die buecher.de-Redaktion: Intelligent, warmherzig und mit einer gehörigen Portion Humor erzählt Jonathan Safran Foer Geschichten, die den Leser noch lange nach der Lektüre angenehm berühren.
Rezensionen
A Financial Times Best Book of the Year "Beautiful, powerful writing that's made me rethink the way I eat." -Samin Nosrat, author of Salt Fat Acid Heat "Eye-opening . . . In this follow-up to his influential Eating Animals, [Foer] brings both personality and passion to an issue that no one has figured out how to address in a way that inspires an adequate response." -Mark Bittman, The New York Times Book Review "This is a life-changing book and will alter your relationship to food for ever . . . Lucid, heartfelt, deeply compassionate . . . Sharp, hard-hitting." -Alex Preston, The Guardian (Observer book of the week) "Remarkable . . . Foer is an innovative writer whose skills are deployed here most effectively in analysing what motivates people to sacrifice short-term comfort and convenience for the sake of salvation in the longer term-and what makes them believe a crisis is real at an emotional level rather than acknowledging it intellectually and carrying on regardless." -Clive Cookson, Financial Times "In a style rarely found in books about global catastrophe, [Foer] interweaves personal stories, bulleted factoids and a delicious serving of metaphor. The effect is dazzling." -Bruce Watson, The Washington Post "We Are the Weather is an earnest call to action in the face of climate change, but it's not a polemic. Instead, it's a personal exploration." -Ross Scarano, The Wall Street Journal "An ode to collective action, persuasively asking readers to take a hard look at our own role in the climate crisis and its solutions." -Kate Wheeling, The New Republic "Foer masterfully uses metaphor and paradox to demonstrate both the good and the evil of which humans are capable . . . His message is poignant and painful, bleak and hopeful. He adroitly challenges readers to combat 'the greatest crisis humankind has ever faced.'" -Bill Schwab, eMissourian.com "Foer's message is both moving and painful, depressing and optimistic, and it will force readers to rethink their commitment to combating 'the greatest crisis humankind has ever faced.'" -Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Deeply contemplative and artfully creative . . . In his desire to convince others to take action, Foer raises the philosophical bar, which is, perhaps, the most effective way of fomenting sincere and long-lasting commitment to this life-threatening crisis." -Carol Haggas, Booklist…mehr
