New Edition (Updated and expanded) of Mike Berners-Lee ‘How Bad are Bananas? The Carbon Footprint of Everything’ – September 3rd 2020

This wonderful updated and expanded book has been published much sooner than I anticipated. And it is a must read. Certainly the book of the year, if not the decade. It will change many of my guesstimated calculations. But that doesn’t matter. The clarity and intelligence of the writing is a delight. Navigating many of the more controversial debates with skill and wisdom. Giving us new information on data and zoom, updated figures on public transport. Watching television is covered in far more detail and may be a shock! A pizza gets discussed in detail. An egg has unfortunately risen from 300g to 340g…..But laundry at 30C has gone down from 600g to 330g as a result of a cleaner electric grid. As long as you dry it on the line….

I have not yet read it cover to cover but every page so far is a gem.
