The degradation of our land

From The Panel, 4:17 pm on 9 August 2019

A new report by the IPCC has given the most detailed view yet on how climate change is impacting life on Earth, in particular, the degradation of the land that we rely on for food production.

This major report on land use and climate change says that our high consumption of meat and dairy produce is fuelling global warming.

We talk to Mike Harvey, NIWA principal scientist, about the report.
