bigger, trickier concepts." -New York Times Book Review
"Some strong and rational suggestions for reducing your personal impact here-and when you're eating smart, you'll have the energy to do the movement building we need to change systems too! This book integrates the individual and the societal in a powerful way." -Bill McKibben
"[The Climate Diet] will guide you from inaction to purpose . . . The book may be brief, but it's solid, practical, educational, and motivating. It stays true to the goal Greenberg professes in the introduction-'to help you get from wherever you are right now to a better place in the future.' It takes a formidable, looming crisis and breaks it down into manageable chunks that infuse the reader with a sense of hopefulness. There's profound satisfaction in doing something, rather than nothing." -Treehugger
"[The Climate Diet] will help get America thinking as a new presidential administration moves in with climate change as a core concern. . . . This is no cookbook but rather an accessible pocket guide to the climate-focused lifestyle and reducing one's carbon footprint. . . . The author drives home a salient point: Whatever the role of governments in curtailing carbon use, it's up to each citizen to make their own sensible choices. . . . A quick and timely read. . . . A solid manifesto for the climate-focused life." -Kirkus
