Every Second

By Bruno Gibert

Every second across the globe, aeroplanes take off and land, plastic bottles are made and recycled, babies are born and people die. Find out the surprising numbers behind what's happening right now on our planet.

A hard-hitting book with striking images and numbers to understand today’s world. Every second, somewhere across the glove, an aeroplane takes off and another one lands. Two people die, but four beautiful newborns enter the world. 15,000 plastic bottles are produced, but only 1600 are recycled. This book of remarkable facts, with memorable infographic accompaniments, reveals the incredible things that happen every second in our world.

  • Colourful, attractive illustrations present facts in a clear, infographic style
  • Covers a wide range of themes, from population to environmental issues
  • Find out how much cows are farting right now across the globe!
