Ita€™s an astonishing fact that capturing all the energy in just one houra€™s worth of sunlight would enable us to meet the planeta€™s food and energy needs for an entire year. Project Sunshine tells the story of how scientists are working to reconnect us to the a€˜solar economya€™, harnessing the power of the sun to provide sustainable food and energy for a global population of 10 billion people: an achievement that would end our dependence on a€˜fossilised sunshinea€™ in the form of coal, oil and gas and remake our connection with the soil that grows our food. Steve McKevitt and Tony Ryan describe the human racea€™s complex relationship with the sun and take us back through history to see how our world became the place it is today a€“ chemically, geologically, ecologically, climatically and economically a€“ before moving on to the cutting-edge science and technology that will enable us to live happily in a sustainable future.How science can use the sun to fuel and feed the world Steve McKevitt, Tony Ryan ...
