From a text message to a war, from a Valentine's rose to a flight or even
having a child, How Bad are Bananas? gives us the carbon answers we need
and provides plenty of revelations. By talking through a hundred or so
items, Mike Berners-Lee sets out to give us a carbon instinct for the
footprint of literally anything we do, buy and think about. He helps us
pick our battles by laying out the orders of magnitude. The book ranges
from the everyday (foods, books, plastic bags, bikes, flights, baths...)
and the global (deforestation, data centres, rice production, the World
Cup, volcanoes, ...) Be warned, some of the things you thought you knew
about green living may be about to be turned on their head. Never preachy
but packed full of information and always entertaining.
