“There is no Planet B”

"There is no Planet B” is a climate slogan that has been printed on many images. In business, if “Plan A” doesn’t work out, there usually is a contingency plan—“Plan B.” However, in regard to a livable climate, there is only one earth and “no Planet B.”

The Daily Telegraph (London, UK), on June 24, 2006, described the new Robert Newman show No Planet B: “The admirable clown-rebel’s new show promises to give us the history of the world backwards by means of song and stand-up.”

“In London, demonstrators braved the cold, rainy December weather to descend on Parliament Square, wielding signs marked: ‘There is no Planet B’” was an Associated Press story published on December 9, 2007. “A company called Ban T-shirts sells non-sweatshop shirts made from organic cotton with messages such as ‘There is no planet B’” was printed in The Spokesman-Review (Spokane, WA) on March 28, 2008. “We have no Planet B” was posted on Twitter by Pat Schmitz on December 10, 2008.

T-shirts have been a marketing medium for everything from sports teams to your favourite beverage.

But they have also been used as walking billboards for more socially useful purposes, covering an amazing range of issues. “There is no Planet B,” “Iraq is Arabic for Vietnam” and “Heroin is a life sentence” are just a few examples.

There Is No Planet B: A Handbook for the Make or Break Years
Mike Berners-Lee
Cambridge University Press, Feb 28, 2019 - Science - 302 pages
Feeding the world, climate change, biodiversity, antibiotics, plastics - the list of concerns seems endless. But what is most pressing, what are the knock-on effects of our actions, and what should we do first? Do we all need to become vegetarian? How can we fly in a low-carbon world? Should we frack? How can we take control of technology? Does it all come down to population? And, given the global nature of the challenges we now face, what on Earth can any of us do? Fortunately, Mike Berners-Lee has crunched the numbers and plotted a course of action that is practical and even enjoyable. There is No Planet B maps it out in an accessible and entertaining way, filled with astonishing facts and analysis. For the first time you’ll find big-picture perspective on the environmental and economic challenges of the day laid out in one place, and traced through to the underlying roots - questions of how we live and think. This book will shock you, surprise you - and then make you laugh. And you’ll find practical and even inspiring ideas for what you can actually do to help humanity thrive on this - our only - planet.
