A Diet of Austerity Class, Food and Climate Change

Recommended Posts

00afa3232a5ab378104e90e5d77af8dc.jpg [b]Elaine Graham-Leigh, "A Diet of Austerity: Class, Food and Climate Change"[/b] ISBN: 1782797408 | 2015 | EPUB | 250 pages | 2 MB How and why the working class are being blamed for climate change, and what we can do about it. Received wisdom is increasingly that we all have to eat less to save the planet, but received wisdom is wrong. A Diet of Austerity argues that, just as the poor are blamed for the economic crisis, Malthusian conceptions about food and ecology are being used to hold the working class responsible for climate change and global hunger. Challenging existing dogmas about overconsumption and personal responsibility, it shows that what we need to stop climate change is system change. "Elaine has a produced a must-read book for all of us concerned with combatting climate change. We can't diet our way to a better world but we can and must change the system to sustain the future. This book is well written, fascinating, controversial and essential." -Derek Wall, former Green Party of England and Wales Principal Speaker and author of The Rise of the Green Left "Who is to blame for climate change? Graham-Leigh says it's not fat people, cows or the working class. A challenging and interesting book, packed with new ideas to make you think again about what you thought you knew." -Jonathan Neale, author of Stop Global Warming, Change the World "Food production and consumption is increasingly recognized as a major driver of global climate change, but where does the balance of blame lie? Elaine Graham-Leigh's book makes an important and timely contribution to the debates swirling around food production systems, 'overconsumption' and climate change. The class-based ideological assault on working people as the culprits of our multi-faceted ecological crisis are elucidated with great clarity by the author. For people who believe combining social justice with ecological sustainability is an essential part of the answer, Graham-Leigh's book provides essential ammunition as to why it is our system of food production for commodity exchange, and the waste inherent in it, rather than individual behavior and food choices, that lies at the heart of the crisis." -Chris Williams, author of Ecology and Socialism "An excellent, polemical book; enjoyable, interesting and very, very well-written. A really new contribution to theory and an incisive argument." -Chris Nineham, author of The People v Tony Blair7409461d53baf8ee6fe405f510a7faff.png [b]Buy Premium From My Links To Get Resumable Support,Max Speed & Support Me[/b]
