How much of the earth’s surface has been concreted over? How much of our energy still comes from burning coal? How many trees would we have to plant to make our planet carbon-neutral? How much space do we need to satisfy all our energy needs through wind and solar power? Presenting a vast amount of scientific research and data in easily accessible, visual form, this book presents us with instant snapshots of the Anthropocene. At one glance, we can see the precarious state of our planet – but also realise how easy it would be to improve it. The maps collected in this book are not only shocking but informative, eye-catching, and witty.
