Dr Harry Clark, the director of the NZ Agricultural Greenhouse Gas Research Centre and a member of the ICCC talks to Kathryn Ryan about the ICCC report, advancements in technology to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, farmers attitudes to climate change, and a major initiative getting underway today to lay out options for reducing on-farm emissions without compromising profitability.

The public now has one month to give the Government their feedback  on the ICCC proposals, with public information sessions being held around the country from 22nd July to 7th August.

Meanwhile a new website will go live today with information and three short, easy-to-understand videos that explain some of the science behind climate change and discuss current and possible future options for reducing on-farm GHG emissions.
