Notes:
'Our Biggest Experiment' tells the story of how the world became addicted to fossil fuels, how we discovered that electricity may be our saviour and how renewable energy is far from a 20th century discovery. Dr Alice Bell cuts through the jargon and the jumble of numbers to present a pacey and approachable telling of how we are getting to grips with what is now the defining issue of our time. She doesn't sugar-coat the situation - the potential consequences for us and for future generations are genuinely disturbing - but she also makes the very salient point that it is amazing that we noticed it in the first place. The message she gives is ultimately hopeful: harnessing the ingenuity and intelligence that has driven the history of climate change research can mean a more sustainable and bearable future for humanity.
