Guild member view: "The New York Times bestseller "How Bad are Bananas?" by Mike Berners-Lee picks out a highly diverse mix of 100 articles or activities, giving an analysis of the carbon footprint of each. It demonstrates the challenge faced when trying to gather this sort of information. Very few things have the same carbon transparency as buying a tank of fuel to drive somewhere. There are unexpected inputs, hidden subsidies and incalculable interactions which make something's actual carbon footprint differ radically from the expected. "How Bad are Bananas?" nails it and reading it confers a basic level of carbon literacy on the reader - but it doesn't spare them from having to guess at the cradle-to-grave carbon footprints of all the other things the book doesn't cover!"
