Feeding the world, climate change, biodiversity, antibiotics, plastics - the list of concerns seems endless. But what is most pressing, what are the knock-on effects of our actions, and what should we do first? Do we all need to become vegetarian? How can we fly in a low-carbon world? Should we frack? How can we take control of technology? Does it all come down to population? And, given the global nature of the challenges we now face, what on Earth can any of us do? Fortunately, Mike Berners-Lee has crunched the numbers and plotted a course of action that is practical and even enjoyable. There is No Planet B maps it out in an accessible and entertaining way, filled with astonishing facts and analysis. For the first time you'll find big-picture perspective on the environmental and economic challenges of the day laid out in one place, and traced through to the underlying roots - questions of how we live and think. This book will shock you, surprise you - and then make you laugh. And you'll find practical and even inspiring ideas for what you can actually do to help humanity thrive on this - our only - planet.… (lisätietoja)

“There is No Planet B” is definitely an excellent book. Mike Berners-Lee has addressed what we call in India, “the common junta”, or regular people who don’t know too much of the science of climate change; and don’t want to study the material.

I like the book. Much science is too abstruse for the general reader. The book contains sufficient material for most people to assimilate and take action.

He writes in a nice, conversational manner. This is good, because it makes the book easy to read.

In short, it is an accessible book, with enough material for most of us to act.

This is our planet, and we will not find another one in our lifetime. ( )

Straightforward accont of where we are headed - my takeaways, 1.We need a global deal to leave fossil fuels in the ground - only a truly global deal will do. 2. An increasing carbon tax goes hand in hand with 1. 3. Alternative energy sources are available - sunlight will do and others can be developed (Hydrogen, Fusion etc). 4. The world is not doomed but must get its act together (to act together). ( )

There Is No Planet B: A Handbook for the Make or Break Years by Mike Berners-Lee is a critical look at the demands on the environment made by man and humanity's growing energy demands. Berners-Lee is a leading expert in carbon footprinting. He is the director, and principal consultant at Small World Consulting and author of How Bad are Bananas? The Carbon Footprint of Everything.

Berners-Lee gives a very accurate look at the demands humanity puts on the environment and clears up several myths and misrepresentations that are now commonplace. We have all heard about deforestation for the expansion of soybeans. What we are not informed about is that the soybeans that are grown are not for human consumption but to feed livestock. Livestock are poor converters of plant protein to animal protein. Give up meat completely? No there is no need grass-fed, and free range can use land that is unproductive for farming. Alternative energy sources such as solar can easily meet our current energy demands, but our increased demand for energy will require every square mile of land to meet our requirements by 2100. Of course, efficiency and technology will improve over time, but efficiency seems to create even higher demand. People get the idea that increased efficiency means you can use it more. If my new car gets 35mpg and my old car only got 17 mpg I can use it twice as much or buy another vehicle.

Berners-Lee finds the loopholes that many people miss when talking about food production or energy use. Is nuclear power too dirty to use? Is my electric car really a coal-burning vehicle (coal is used to produce electricity that powers the vehicle)? And is it worse than an oil-powered vehicle? Is fracking safe? Is wealth disparages hurting things overall? There is No Planet B offers a thought proking and sometimes scary outlook for the future. It is not a smooth read all the way through and can easily be read by topic and skipped through. The subject matter is compartmentalized and can be easily jumped through to the issues of interest. There Is No Planet B is a well-done and realistic critique of man versus the planet.

Good first section giving facts about climate change, relative energy usage etc. The second part about changing our view of economics and what people should do, is way off the mark, in my view. He is basically telling people that they should not follow the value systems created by evolution. What the world needs is a carbon tax on everything, everywhere. Eventually it will have to agree to it as a consequence of climate change. ( )

Mike Berners-Lee has written a book —There is no Planet B —about Climate Change that lays out the problems of human impact on the earth and its upcoming issues and what WE as individuals, government and businesses can do to slow down and make our impact on the earth more friendly for our children, grandchildren and beyond. This is a blueprint that Ms. Ocasio-Cortez should’ve borrowed from and turned to as a realistic plan for narrowing the industrial footprint. Not just what she thinks should be stopped or changed, but HOW it can be changed in simple steps and larger steps taken globally. This is a well written book, easy to read, easy to understand, and even has a teasing sense of humor to it. ( )
