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.
