    Worldwide, over a billion people are overweight and 300 million are obese. At the same time, global warming threatensIan Roberts and Phil Edwardsthe survival of our species. The Energy Glut shows how the heating of our planet and the bulging of our waistlines are manifestations of the same global malaise. Ian Roberts and Phil Edwards present a vision of humanity besieged by a food industry pushing a surfeit of energy-dense food, while the rise of the car means we have fewer opportunities to move our bodies than ever before.
