About the book
The World We Made is told through the words of Alex McKay, a teacher looking back from 2050, to tell the story of how we got from where we are today (in a pretty bad way, environmentally) to a much better place in the future.
Part history, part personal memoir, Alex's story charts the key events, technology breakthroughs and lifestyle revolutions that make the world what it is mid-century.
Inevitably, there are lots of 'shocks to the system' along the way - caused by accelerating climate change, threats to food supplies and so on. Those shocks massively reinforce the case for radical changes - which come thick and fast from 2018 onwards.
