In Comfortably Unaware , Dr. Richard 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 of ourselves. Oppenlander

I LOVED this book; short, sweet, to the point and no punches pulled. The author lays out the ugly truth and does not apologize. It is not an "in your face" book, but does an excellent job of presenting the information. Michael Pollan & his fear of speaking the truth could learn a lot from the courage of this author. Forgo Pollan's muddled, cowardly thoughts on food it's environmental impact and read this book instead. AMAZING.
As a side note, a lot of this information is presented in the the doc "Cowspiracy" which I also loved.
