Anna Lappe', one of Time's "Eco- Who's Who" argues that there is an unsettling connection between food production and global warming in her latest, Diet for a Hot Planet. Nearly 40 years ago, Frances Moore Lappe' published Diet for a Small Planet. Today, the pair still stand firmly behind this book - which started as a one-page handout and would become the foundation of Anna's own life's work - stressing that to understand world politics, we need first to understand food. The mother and daughter have traveled far and wide and conclude that "hunger is not caused by a scarcity of food but by a scarcity of democracy." They encourage us to recognize food as a powerful starting point for solving one of our planet's biggest problems.
