Description

Nikki Jones talks on the effect of land use on climate change.

24% of the UK greenhouse gas emissions are attributed to agriculture, forestry and other land use. Her talk will cover topics such as :- How our soil and trees sequester carbon, how our peat lands and forests must be protected, how we should farm our land to prevent water runoff and loss of top soil (we have lost a third of top soil in the last 100 years), the use of nitrogen fertilisers, pesticide,herbicide and fungicides and livestock farming. She will give an update on UK government policy and look at why consumer choices matter.
