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, Green Maps to Save the World 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. Did you know that just 67 companies worldwide are responsible for 67 per cent of global greenhouse emissions? Or that keeping a horse has the same carbon footprint as a 23,500-kilometre road trip from Manchuria to South Africa? Did you know how many countries use less energy than is consumed globally by downloading porn from the internet?

Frightening, enlightening and inspiring, Green Maps to Save the World doesn't provide practical tips on how to save our planet: it presents just the facts. And the facts speak for themselves. Once we know them, what excuse do we have for failing to act?
