George Monbiot talks to Adam Rutherford


Hay Festival 2022, 

What if there were a way to stop climate change and end global hunger at the same time? Monbiot’s new book is an exhilarating journey into a new possible future for food, people and the planet. Drawing on the rapidly advancing science of soil ecology, he shows how the hidden biological universe beneath our feet could transform the food we eat and how we grow it. He shares his profoundly hopeful, appetising and exciting vision of food: of revolutionary cultivation and cuisine that could nourish us all and restore our world of wonders. George Monbiot is a renowned environmental activist, a contibutor to the Guardian and author of Out of the Wreckage: A New Politics in the Age of Crisis. In conversation with the scientist, author and broadcaster Adam Rutherford.
