His stark mental images are often disturbing--and that's how it should be. We need to be shaken out of our complacency and understand how to ensure the well-being of our planet--and of ourselves.Oppenlander presents this information in easy-to-read chapters on issues including rainforests, oceans, and the air we breathe. His fresh insight on this controversial topic goes beyond the familiar warnings about "global warming." His book is essential reading; he provides new perspectives on how this global crisis reached such startling proportions, and how to solve the problem.Comfortably Unaware will open your eyes to the global effects of your food choices and, hopefully, will encourage you to make a difference.
