There is something we can do

Tuesday, March 30, 2021

“We have to do something.” It’s the phrase that seems to be on the tip of everyone’s tongue these days, the unofficial slogan of our moment. And yet almost no one does anything beyond reiterating the need to do something. We either don’t know what to do or don’t want to do it. So instead we stagger across the battlefield, firing blank after blank without aiming: something, something, something … 

But there is something we can do. Choosing to eat fewer animal products is probably the most important action an individual can take to reverse global warming—it has a known and significant effect on the environment, and, done collectively, would push the culture and the marketplace with more force than any March."

~ Jonathan Safran Foer, We Are the Weather: Saving the Planet Begins at Breakfast, 2019
