All Reviews - The Great Climate RobberyWrite a review.
It’s about time that the role agriculture plays in the climate crisis – and the role it could play in the solution – got a concentrated dose of attention. This is fine work that will provoke much new activism!Bill McKibben, author of Deep Economy
This book is a must read for movements addressing climate change as well as seed and food Sovereignty. It shows that industrial corporate agriculture is a major part of the climate crisis, and small scale ecological farming is a significant solution. It also alerts us to the false solutions being offered by those who created the problem — the Exxons of agriculture.Vandana Shiva, author of Soil, Not Oil, Making Peace with the Earth
Food, land and seeds: protecting them is as essential to climate justice as rooftop solar, wind co-ops, or democratic public transit. This book lifts up the voices of indigenous and peasant farmers around the world, comprehensively explaining why their fight to stop the industrial food juggernaut is the same as the fight for a habitable, just planet.Naomi Klein, author of This Changes Everything and The Shock Doctrine
This is a very timely book, particularly for readers in developing countries where elites may be actively promoting industrial agriculture or may be pressured to open their countries’ markets to it. The capital-driven industrial agriculture and food system is a totalising enclosure of the commons that affect not only land, but almost every factor in food production, particularly seeds. This book is very valuable to all those who are concerned about the changes in the food system and its linkage to climate change. It captures and analyses the critical forces and dynamics in industrial agriculture and food system, as well as offering ways to change it.Yan Hairong, Department of Applied Social Sciences, Hong Kong Polytechnic University, China
This publication is an instrument of great analytical value providing an alternative for moving forward in the fight for sustainable human development and for the right to life on the planet.Víctor Hugo Jijon, Commission for the Defense of Human Rights, Quito, Ecuador
This book is the fruit of GRAIN’s long experience in the field. It is based on solid evidence and excellent analysis. The link between climate and agricultural activities is essential to contribute to a solution and GRAIN does not hesitate to denounce responsibilities and to indicate efficient ways for action.François Houtart, Professor, National Institute of Higher Studies (IAEN), Ecuador
GRAIN takes on the key challenge of our time and lays the scaffoldings for the construction of a livable future. Climate crisis, toxic industrial agriculture and dirty energy: this publication shows the linkages as not being incidental but orchestrated by a warped system that must be straightened out.Nnimmo Bassey, Director, Health of Mother Earth Foundation, author of To Cook a Continent: Destructive Extraction and the Climate Crisis in Africa
We welcome the efforts of our colleagues at GRAIN to put Via Campesina’s proposals to cool the planet and fight false solutions at the centre of the debate. The time has come to change the system, not the climate. Our farmers and indigenous peoples can cool the planet.Edgardo García, International Coordinating Committee – Via Campesina.
