FREE Talk: Land Use and Climate Change
July 17 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
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 Bath Brew House, St James St West, Bath. 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.
