Synopsis

'I think we're fucked' Stephen Emmott



Ten Billion is a book about us.



It's a book about you, your children, your parents, your friends. It's about every one of us. It's about our failure: failure as individuals, the failure of business, and the failure of our politicians.



It is about an unprecedented planetary emergency.



It's about the future of us.

Stephen Emmott leads Microsoft's Computational Science Laboratory in Cambridge, which develops new thinking to tackle fundamental problems in science in areas of societal importance. He is also Professor of Computational Science at the University of Oxford and has, among many other advisory roles, been scientific advisor to the Chancellor of the Exchequer. His lecture on population and climate change, Ten Billion, was one of the Guardian's best theatre events of 2012.
