About this title

Synopsis:

From maple syrup to wine to vegetables and livestock, Endangered Harvest chronicles how climate change will affect our food supply both at home and around the world. The story goes beyond just the science, weaving personal and historical narratives into the obstacles that various regions and crops are encountering even now. How well can farmers adapt as conditions morph around them? And who will adapt more successfully, the large, industrial farms that now dominate production, or the small, diversified, organic farms that serve a growing clientele? Our world faces an expanding list of environmental and social stresses; climate change is one piece of that important puzzle. Meanwhile, food is our most consumptive habit, and a major contributor to greenhouse gases. When it comes to eating, what choices can individuals make to help prevent climate change? Climate change is not a new phenomenon, but with human hands on the thermostat, it has taken on new strength. Endangered Harvest looks to the past as well as the present, and examines how our crops and our species might react to this urgent threat as the future unfolds.

About the Author:

Malcolm Lewis earned a Bachelors degree in Environmental Writing from the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia in 2008. He now lives on the coast of Maine where he works as a carpenter. In his free time he enjoys sailing, running, biking, swimming, and cooking. In order to honestly address climate change, and the many other environmental problems we face, Malcolm promotes the idea that our species must drastically reduce both consumption and population.
