Bristol Counterfire presents a talk & discussion with author and climate campaigner Elaine Graham-Leigh, who is launching her NEW BOOK ‘A Diet of Austerity: Class, Food and Climate Change’!
This is a free event – all are welcome – so invite your friends!
“A must-read book for all of us concerned with combating 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 and author of The Rise of the Green Left
‘Who is to blame for climate change? Graham-Leigh says it’s not fat people, cows or the working class. A challenging and interesting book, packed with new ideas to make you think again about what you thought you knew.’
~ Jonathan Neale, Author of Stop Global Warming, Change the World
‘Food production and consumption is increasingly recognized as a major driver of global climate change, but where does the balance of blame lie? Elaine Graham-Leigh’s book makes an important and timely contribution to the debates swirling around food production systems, ‘overconsumption’ and climate change. This book is for people who believe in combining social justice with ecological sustainability.’
~ Chris Williams, Author of Ecology and Socialism
