Miscellanées de ma planète
Jennifer Gallé

What is an urban heat island? How should you drive your car to reduce its carbon emissions to the utmost? In which of the world’s cities do trees make their presence felt the most? What are the main causes of deforestation, and its main consequences? What is sylvotherapy? What percentage of the world’s plastic production is currently being recycled? Who was Rachel Carson?

This book is a collection of some 200 articles, anecdotes, and data-based pieces of information about our planet and its ecological equilibrium. Whether serious or lighthearted, theoretical or practical, useful or trivial, these unexpected but always instructive pieces can be read in any order. Strewn with effective initiatives, the book also suggests all sorts of ways to fight back against the disaster foretold.

The lively illustrations and layout turn it into a truly pleasurable moment of reading.

A gold mine of information, anecdotes, and numerical data that invites readers to rediscover our planet. The articles are organized into broad ecological themes (biodiversity, climate, natural resources, energy, pollution, etc.). Readers can delve into this surprising curiosity cabinet in whatever order they please, skipping from discovery to discovery.
