Megmenthetjük-e a Földet?


"Egy gyakran idézett Obama-mondat szerint mi vagyunk az első generáció, mely tényleg érzi a klímaváltozás hatásait, és az utolsó generáció, melynek hatalmában áll bármit is tenni ellene. A globális felmelegedés következményeit világszerte érzékeljük, a műanyaggal elárasztott folyókat és óceánokat bemutató képek ösztönösen elborzasztják a nézőt. A kormányok, a nagyvállalatok és az egyes emberek is kezdik megváltoztatni politikájukat és viselkedésüket – ám lehet, hogy mindez túl kevés, és túl későn történik? Visszafordíthatjuk-e a folyamatot, vagy nem maradt más, mint alkalmazkodni az új körülményekhez?

Dokážeme zachrániť planétu Zem?


Klimatická zmena pustoší celý svet. Oceány sú plné plastov, prírodné ekosystémy Zeme zničené a až jednému miliónu druhov hrozí vyhynutie. Od 19. storočia sme spôsobili globálne oteplenie približne o 1 °C. Podarí sa nám naplniť ambície parížskych klimatických rokovaní z roku 2015 a udržať globálne otepľovanie na hranici 1,5 °C? Zvládneme úplne prejsť na obnoviteľné zdroje energie? Sme schopní zbaviť sa jednorazových plastov a zvyšok recyklovať? Dokážeme vysadiť nové lesy, aby sme vytvorili zachytávače uhlíka? Táto rozumná a znepokojujúca kniha obsahuje prehľad širokej škály dostupných technologických, environmentálnych a politických opatrení na zastavenie poškodzovania a regeneráciu Zeme, aby sa na nej darilo všetkých druhom.

Can We Save The Planet?


The Big Idea shortlisted for series design in the British Design and Production Awards The effects of global warming are being felt around the world through climate change, and images of our rivers and oceans choking with plastic have provoked an instinctive horrified reaction. In response, governments, corporations and individuals are beginning to change their policies and behaviour - but is it too little, too late? Is it possible to reverse the damage we have done to the planet, or have we reached the point where we are only able to manage the problems and devastation caused? This engaging and incisive volume offers insightful analysis of a range of key issues including deforestation, global warming and single use plastics, while evaluating whether - and how - it may just be possible to mend our planet.

Our Biggest Experiment


It was Eunice Newton Foote, an American scientist and women's rights campaigner living in Seneca Falls, New York, who first warned the world that an atmosphere heavy with carbon dioxide could send temperatures here on Earth soaring. This was back in 1856. At the time, no one paid much attention. Our Biggest Experiment tells Foote's story, along with stories of the many other scientists who helped to build our modern understanding of climate change. It also chronicles our energy system, from whale oil to kerosene and beyond -- the first steamships, wind turbines, electric cars, oil tankers and fridges. Alice Bell takes us back to climate change science's earliest steps in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, to the advancing realisation that global warming was a significant problem in the 1950s and right up to today, where we have seen the growth of the environmental movement, climate scepticism and political responses like the UN climate talks. As citizens of the twenty-first century, it can feel like history has dealt us a rather bad hand in the climate crisis. In many ways, this is true. Our ancestors have left us an almighty mess. But they left us tools for survival too, and Our Biggest Experiment tells both sides of the story. The message of the book is ultimately hopeful; harnessing the ingenuity and intelligence that has long driven the history of climate change research can mean a more sustainable and bearable future for humanity.
