About Us

My Climate Diet follows Lisa Pettibone, a teacher, writer, and sustainability geek, as she goes on a new type of diet. It's all about shedding unwanted pounds -- or tons -- of carbon dioxide and finding a lifestyle that doesn't wreck the planet. Funny, personal, and informative, My Climate Diet provides real-life tips to help you slim down your carbon footprint.

Latest Episodes

Year 2, Ep 3: Degrowth and race

Today I introduce the concept of degrowth and start my celebration of Black Future Month by looking for black voices who have written about degrowth or related visions. I look at a 2013 article in "Sustainability" by Brian Gilmore on degrowth and racial inequality, talk about N. K. Jemisin's short story about anti-colonial technological innovation "The Effluent Engine," and read Ta-Nehisi Coates connecting climate change to a history of an American Dream that plunders black bodies and now nature itself in "Between the World and Me." And I admit a major fail that I have read nothing by the legendary Octavia Butler. To be fixed by next time, I promise! Finally, a shout-out to Speculative Futures Berlin and particularly Mathana Stender, Wenzel Mehnert, and Carmen Schmöl for urging me to read Ms. Butler's work.

Year 2, Ep. 2: A Book-Buying Ban and Unread Shelves

This week, I talk about my plan with my husband to stop buying books and DVDs for six months, and what this means for the climate (hint: not much). I talk more generally about deprivation as a source of joy and look into the Unread Shelf Project (theunreadshelf.com), which also includes book-buying bans as a way to get reading. And there are shout-outs to BookMooch (bookmooch.com), Emily Atkin's HEATED newsletter, the podcast "Drilled: The Mad Men of Climate Change," and the German-language podcast "Sauercrowded," which features me as a guest in this month's episode.

Year 2, Ep. 2: A Book-Buying Ban and Unread Shelves

Year 2, Ep. 1: Back on the Scales

It’s a new year and I’ve been on a climate diet for 10 months now. So today I step back on the scales and see how my carbon footprint has changed. I find I've lost nearly 2 tons from the challenges I've given myself since starting the podcast, and talk about the impact each thing has made as well as the savings from doing the podcast itself. I then discuss my plans for the year, including a ban on book-buying, and how the vegan bodybuilding documentary The Gamechangers is giving me hope.

Episode 28: Clean sheets and a clean slate for Christmas

This week, I have to change my plans for December to gripe about setbacks at the junk house. But I share a great idea for a DIY advent calendar that reduces food waste, cleans out your pantry, and uses stuff you've already got lying around the house. It just needs a better name.

Episode 27: Buy Nothing Day

Hey everyone, this Friday, November 29, is Buy Nothing Day and the Global Climate Strike! I talk about Buy Nothing Day, why it's important, and how to get involved. Learn more at adbusters.org and fridaysforfuture.org. Plus, two stories about divestment--at the European Investment Bank and the Yale-Harvard football game--are giving me hope this week. Happy Thanksgiving, and see you in a few weeks!

Episode 26: Go-To Recipes

This week, I challenged myself to cook and eat one type of local, seasonal vegetable I've never cooked before. Well, I failed, but primarily because I wanted to cook up vegetables I already had in the kitchen (just say no to food waste!). In the episode, I share my go-to recipe for carrot soup, my new recipe for roasted vegetables (magali), and mention a recipe for vegan peanut butter cookies that turned out a dream. I also give a shout-out to my fellow sustainability teachers and the German podcast Sauercrowded.

Episode 25: Food Miles and Local Produce

What's got a higher transportation footprint, bananas or strawberries? This week I figure out the importance of food miles to our carbon footprint and give some tips on how to reduce our transportation foodprint. I challenge myself to cook some seasonal produce I've never made before and talk about how N. K. Jemisin's Broken Earth trilogy is making me hopeful about the future.

Episode 24 - Where's the Beef? Meat and Climate Change

To kick off a month of food-themed episodes, I start by going to the meat of the issue. I look at how important our diet is for climate change, and what parts of our diet have the highest emissions. The answer: beef is the real climate-killer. Then I salivate over an amazing vegan burger called Leinöl Richie.

Episode 23: Plastic

This week, I talk a bit about plastic, drawing heavily from the Guardian's excellent series "The United States of Plastic." I pledge to stop buying beverages in single-use plastic bottles, and complain about unfriendly packaging free supermarkets in Berlin.

Episode 22 - Extinction Rebellion Week in Berlin

This past week, I spent most of my free time at Extinction Rebellion's DelibCamp in Berlin. I spoke with protesters, listened to workshops, and helped out in my small way. I want to share some information about Extinction Rebellion, Rebellion Week, and particularly the DelibCamp in Berlin. I also talk about the latest government action related to climate change in Germany. Special thanks to XR DelibCamp press contact Carl Fuchs for chatting with me about the camp.
