Meet the mega human: colossal, clueless . . . and the biggest hope for life on earth
There are eight billion of us humans.
All breathing, eating, fidgeting and thinking deep thoughts.
It's an unimaginably large number. Or is it?
The mega human is the result of smooshing all the people in the world together into one spectacular giant (don't try this at home). Even though the mega human is not the smartest of creatures, it is slowly beginning to understand the problems it has created for Planet Earth's future . . . and how it might be able to fix them.
Making use of brain-bending stats and smoosh theory, The Biggest Footprint is a journey of self-discovery suitable for anyone and everyone identifying as human.
