The Climate Diet offers an optimistic, easy to understand and engaging message. It has never been easier for families to cut back on their use of fossil fuels and protect the climate all while saving money. By using the familiar language of weight loss, The Climate Diet explains climate change concepts, problems and solutions in ways that anyone can easily understand. Following a five-step climate diet plan, families will be able to count their carbon calories, learn how to reduce them and aim for one of four different levels of achievement: Participant, Bronze, Silver and Gold, each of which can be tailored to fit almost any lifestyle.
This is the must-have guide to the most important diet ever. If we all participate, the greenhouse gas emissions bulge can be beaten, leaving us with a slim healthy planet now and for the future.
We live in a world of excess. We consume too much of everythingâ€”food, clothes, cars, bricks and mortar. Our bingeing is often so extreme that it threatens our own health and well being. And we are not the only ones who are getting sick.
The Earthâ€”which provides the food, air, water and land that sustains usâ€”is also under severe pressure. Gluttonous consumption of nature's trans-fatsâ€”carbon-based fossil fuels, deforestation and unsustainable resource useâ€”is disrupting the global temperature-regulating machine that mother nature has carefully maintained for millions of years. Try as she may to keep from running a fever, the environmental reengineering wrought by six billion people, like a force of nature, is warming our world. At some point, something just has to give. We either take steps to put our personal lifestyles and planetary systems back into balance or we suffer the consequences.
So, what does any unhealthy overweight person do when the doctor tells him or her that they are eating hemselves into an early grave? Go on a diet!
