The carbon footprint of everything / Mike Berners-Lee.

Berners-Lee, Mike, (author.).

Summary:

"An award-winning, practical (and funny) guide to reducing your carbon footprint. Calculate your carbon footprint: with an item-by-item breakdown. Meet your company's carbon goals: using the latest research. Covid-19 and the carbon battle: understand the new global supply chain. The Carbon Footprint of Everything breaks items down by the amount of carbon they produce, creating a calorie guide for the carbon-conscious. With engaging writing, leading carbon expert Mike Berners-Lee shares new carbon calculations based on recent research. He considers the impact of the pandemic on the carbon battle--especially the embattled global supply chain--and adds items we didn't consider a decade ago, like bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. Supported by solid research, cross-referenced with other expert sources, illustrated with easy-to-follow charts and graphs, and written with Berners-Lee's trademark sense of humor, The Carbon Footprint of Everything should be on everyone's bookshelf. The Carbon Footprint of Everything is an extensively revised and updated edition of How Bad Are Bananas."-- Provided by publisher.
