The Thing With Feathers


Hope doesn't come from calculating whether the good news is winning over the bad. It's simply a choice to take action. ~ Anna Lappé

Anna Lappé and Frances Moore Lappé are the authors of Diet for a Small Planet and Grub (among other books) and founders of the Small Planet Institute and Take a Bite Out of Climate Change.

I particularly loved Take a Bite's "About" section, which includes this (blue and bold are mine):

Take a Bite plunges into the heart of the debate with a powerful message: If we are serious about the crisis, we’ve got to talk about food.

With nearly one-third of all greenhouse gas emissions coming from the food and agriculture sector, we at Take a Bite are here to help you learn about the connection between global warming and the food on your plate and what you can do about it.



The connection between global warming and the food on your plate and what you can do about it. Amen. Count me in.
