How does humans' use of land contribute to climate change?
Is the livestock industry a bigger source of greenhouse gases than fossil fuels?
What is Biological Energy Carbon Capture and Storage and should it underpin climate change policy?
Nikki Jones, researcher/writer on global energy will be explaining the climate change impact of land use at the Salt Cafe on St George's Road, near Jacob's Wells roundabout, BS1 5UJ. She will describe the many ways that livestock production adds to our greenhouse gas emissions and how getting carbon back into the soil should be a priority for governments. There will be opportunities for questions throughout.
This talk will be the sixth in a series of seven talks focusing on climate change and energy use. The other talks in this series are:
