Anna Lappé at Mount Holyoke

Fall 2010

Anna Lappé, best-selling author and food activist, gave a lecture titled "Eat the Sky: The Climate Crisis and the Future of Food” in the Gamble Auditorium.

National bestselling author Anna Lappé discussed the connection between the climate crisis and the food on our plates. From raising livestock in industrial-scale feedlots to razing rainforests to make palm oil for Pop Tarts, the choices we make about what we put on our plates and what we do with the waste contribute to as much as one third of total greenhouse-gas emissions.
