Anna's new book is a spin-off of her mother's "Diet for a Small Planet" book written in 1971.

Lappe of Luxury: Anna Lappe

If you don’t know her already … get to know her now. Anna Lappe’s a  down-to-earth greenie author who just released her third book, Diet for a Hot Planet: The Climate Crisis at the End of Your Fork and What You Can Do About It. While you may not think “global warming” when you sit down to dinner, Lappe explains the tangled web of global food—from Pop-Tarts packaged in Tennessee and eaten in Texas to pork chops raised in Poland, with feed from Brazil, then shipped to South Korea— is connected to as much as one third of total greenhouse-gas emissions. This eco-genius has been named one of Time’s “eco” Who’s-Who, and has been featured in The New York Times, Gourmet, O: The Oprah Magazine, Domino, Food & Wine, Body + Soul, Natural Health, and Vibe, among many other publications. Anna is also a founding principal, with her mother Frances Moore Lappé, of the Cambridge-based Small Planet Institute, an international network for research and popular education about the root causes of hunger and poverty. The Lappés are also co-founders of the Small Planet Fund, which has raised more than $500,000 for democratic social movements worldwide, two of which have won the Nobel Peace Prize since the Fund’s founding in 2002. Swanky!

Livestock alone is associated with more emissions than all of the world’s transportation combined.
