We Are the Weather: Saving the Planet Begins at Breakfast (Italian publisher Guanda), a reflection on all individual actions that can have a significative impact on the planet crisis, is at the heart of the American writer’s dialogue with Paolo Giordano.
The author of Everything is illuminated and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close is sure that if everybody starts to play their part, we could avoid that the planet crisis become irreversible. This is the thesis of his work, within the debate about global warming, stimulating individuals to make changes in their lifestyle, forgetting about resignation. After Eating Animals, part memoir and part investigative report about the conditions imposed on animals by the industrial farming, Foer speaks about how daily choices can change the world and keep the Earth as a home not only for human being but for all species.
