Book Description:

America is exceptional in its overconsumption of both food and fuel, but it is also exceptional in terms of the weakness of its national policy efforts to correct these problems. Many scholars champion preventative action as the key solution to obesity and climate change; however, Paarlberg predicts that the more realistic goal of adaptation will supplant non-attainable goals based only on prevention.
