New Book described by Jane Goodall, PhD, DBE, UN Messenger of Peace "Comfortably Unaware explains, so clearly, how what we choose to eat has a direct impact on the health of Planet Earth: how modern agro-business and our thoughtless appetites are, quite literally, destroying the environment and the future of our children. I urge you to read it, to think about its message, discuss it with your friends - and start to change the world, one bite, one meal, one diet at a time."
Comfortably Unaware : "Do you know the true cost that your food has on our resources? 'What you choose to eat is killing our planet,' says lecturer and author Dr. Richard Oppenlander. In Comfortably Unaware, he reveals the truth about food choices and its impact on our world. Dr. Oppenlander tackles the crucial issue of 'global depletion' as it relates to food choice. 'We should all be committed,' he tells us, 'to understanding the reality and consequences of our diet, the footprint it makes on our environment, and seek food products that are in the best interest of all living things.' His forthright information and stark mental images are often disturbing, and that's how it should be. As the guardians of Planet Earth, we need to be shaken out of our complacency, to stop being 'comfortably unaware,' and to understand the measures we must take to ensure the health and well-being of our planet and ourselves.
