About the Festival What's on Mike Berners-Lee There is No Planet B There is No Planet B Feeding the world, climate change, biodiversity, plastics – the list of concerns seems endless. But which is most pressing, what are the knock-on effects of our actions, and what should we tackle first? Do we all need to become vegetarian? Should we still fly in a low-carbon world? Should we frack? How can we take control of technology? Does it all come down to population? Fortunately, Mike Berners-Lee has crunched the numbers and plotted a course of action that is practical and even enjoyable. Accessible and entertaining, There is No Planet B maps out the solutions.
