Food and Climate Change without the hot air
Discussion | Environment & Nature, Food & Drink, Health & Medicine, Science
Join Professor Sarah Bridle and former MP Julian Huppert on World Food Day, the day of this event, for a conversation about food and climate change. Out of concern for her children’s future, Bridle set out to understand how global food choices contribute to a quarter of the world’s greenhouse-gas emissions. This discussion and Q&A accompanies her well-researched and accessible book, Food and Climate Change Without the Hot Air.
