There Is No Planet B

Mike Berners-Lee

Overview

Driving an unnecessarily large or powerful car and smoking have one thing in common – they are both unsustainable. And as the damage adds up, it gets easier to notice the world's chronic inefficiency in energy production and consumption.

Mike Berners Lee is an expert in carbon footprint, having studied it since he graduated from the University of Oxford, majoring in physics. Here, Berners-Lee presents the results of decades of research into the global effects of human industrial development.

There Is No Planet B focuses on how both macroprocesses such as industrial greenhouse gas emissions and microprocesses such as personal diet and travel affect the environment. The book's message is clear – Earth is all we have.

Favorite Quote

"Respect the world including all its lifeforms, not just as servants to humanity but perhaps because they - all lifeforms - have some inherent value in their own right. Respect the truth for its own sake, even if it's inconvenient."
