Christopher Cook discusses Diet For A Dead Planet: Big Business and the Coming Food Crisis.Intensively researched, Diet For A Dead Planet examines how - and why - American agribusiness has become so deadly to our health, our economy, and the environment. Investigative journalist Cook goes beyond fast food and GMOs to show how our entire food system, from field to dinner table, is in crisis - from large-scale farms emitting toxic pollutants and relying on precarious fossil fuels, to misguided farm subsidies and the disturbing rise of food-borne illnesses. Cook investigates the true costs of a seemingly cheap food supply controlled by a handful of powerful corporations. He proposes broad changes in the way we eat, the way we produce, and the way we think about food.Chris Cook has written on labor, welfare, agribusiness and other issues for Harper's, The Economist, Mother Jones, The Nation, The American Prospect, and others; he has won numerous awards, including the 2001 Project Censored Award.moreless
