Samenvatting

Feeling anxious, powerless or confused about the future of our planet? This book will transform how you see our biggest environmental problems -- and how we can solve them
'Truly essential' MARGARET ATWOOD * 'Invigorating, inspiring, often surprising' DAVID WALLACE-WELLS * 'Eye-opening and essential' BILL GATES
We are bombarded by doomsday headlines that tell us the soil won't be able to support crops, fish will vanish from our oceans, that we should reconsider having children.
But in this bold, radically hopeful book, data scientist Hannah Ritchie argues that if we zoom out, a very different picture emerges. The data shows we've made so much progress on these problems, and so fast, that we could be on track to achieve true sustainability for the first time in history.
Packed with the latest research, practical guidance and enlightening graphics, this book will make you rethink almost everything you've been told about the environment, from the virtues of eating locally and living in the countryside, to the evils of overpopulation, plastic straws and palm oil. It will give you the tools to understand what works, what doesn't and what we urgently need to focus on so we can leave a sustainable planet for future generations.
These problems are big. But they are solvable. We are not doomed. We can build a better future for everyone. Let's turn that opportunity into reality.
‘I find it hard to express how much I love this book’ RUTGER BREGMAN * 'An unmissable myth-busting book to save our planet – read it' TIM SPECTOR
