There Is No Planet B: A Handbook for the Make or Break Years - Updated Edition (Paperback)Mike Berners-Lee (author)
An updated edition with fresh material on protests, pandemics, wildfires and more, There Is No Planet B explores the various environmental and economic challenges we face today and the practical action we can take to enact positive change.
Feeding the world, climate change, biodiversity, antibiotics, plastics, pandemics - the list of concerns seems endless. But what is most pressing, and what should we do first? Do we all need to become vegetarian? How can we fly in a low-carbon world? How can we take control of technology? And, given the global nature of the challenges we now face, what on Earth can any of us do, as individuals?
Mike Berners-Lee has crunched the numbers and plotted a course of action that is full of hope, practical, and enjoyable. This is the big-picture perspective on the environmental and economic challenges of our day, laid out in one place, and traced through to the underlying roots - questions of how we live and think.
This updated edition has new material on protests, pandemics, wildfires, investments, carbon targets and of course, on the key question: given all this, what can I do?

“Essential Reading while in lockdown”
I doubt whether there exists a better introduction
to the things we need to be aware of
as we learn how to cope with the new normal
and try to leave a better, safer planet for our children and grandchildren
“The Best Introduction to facing up to reality”
Mike Berners-Lee's book should be the go to introduction for this topic. I applaud the simplicity of his writing that ensures that a solid foundation is provided on each of the issues he writes about.
