Sunlight and Seaweed


Acclaimed scientist Tim Flannery investigates exciting new technologies currently being developed to address our most pressing environmental threats in a book that presents a positive future for us and our planet.

Climate change, food production, and pollution pose significant challenges, but as Flannery demonstrates, innovative and practical solutions are already within our reach. New technology harnessing concentrated sunlight can now provide intense, storable heat energy, offering clean renewable power around the clock. This abundant energy can also address global food needs by enabling energy-intensive methods to purify polluted land for agriculture.

Removing carbon from the atmosphere is crucial for mitigating climate change. Flannery explores the potential of kelp, a rapidly growing sea algae, to convert atmospheric carbon into a non-gaseous form, significantly reducing carbon levels.

With clear and engaging explanations of the science behind these technologies and examples of their implementation worldwide, "Sunlight and Seaweed" presents an optimistic and enlightening perspective on the future.
