Synopsis

How will climate change affect our future world? Will forests turn to deserts? Will whole cities sink beneath the waves? Will we swim to school, and take speedboats to work? Will coal, oil, and cow farts destroy the planet?! Err…no. Probably not.

But the world will change, and our future lives will change along with it. In this amazing book, Glenn Murphy, author of Why is Snot Green?, takes you on a time-travelling trip to the year 2050, to answer all your questions about the future of planet Earth.

Join future-school student Jake as he explores a world of floating trains and liquid traffic . . . of underwater windmills and volcanic electricity . . . of vertical farms, rooftop cycle-tubes, solar-powered smart-houses and grass-powered buses!

Packed with incredible information about the future of food, water, transport, energy and the environment, this book has all the good stuff and none of the boring bits!
