How Bad Are Bananas? was a groundbreaking book when first published in
2009, when most of us were hearing the phrase 'carbon footprint' for the
first time. Mike Berners-Lee set out to inform us what was important
(aviation, heating, swimming pools) and what made very little difference
(bananas, naturally packaged, are good!). This new edition updates all
the figures (from data centres to hosting a World Cup) and introduces
many areas that have become a regular part of modern life - Twitter, the
Cloud, Bitcoin, electric bikes and cars, even space tourism.
Berners-Lee runs a considered eye over each area and gives us the figures to manage and reduce our own carbon footprint, as well as to lobby our companies, businesses and government. His findings, presented in clear and even entertaining prose, are often surprising. And they are essential if we are to address climate change.
