Agriculture's impact on climate change.

Mother earth has the answers, but have we asked the right questions?

Soil microbiologist and climate scientist, Dr Walter Jehne, is hosting a webinar on Thursday 24 February 2022 at 4:30 pm (NZT)

Background on the subject – from Prof. Frank Griffin

Considering the relevance and unique aspects of climate change associated with New Zealand agriculture in the immediate future, we must gain a deeper understanding of the science that influences climate change. We must develop kiwi-centric solutions to mitigate extreme climate changes which have begun to threaten food security worldwide. This webinar will explore strategies to reduce heating and increase planetary cooling, that is required to modulate climatic extremes and ensure food security.

The upcoming webinars will explore new ways to achieve climatic homeostasis without recourse to unproven futuristic GHG capture technologies. The next webinar in the series will analyse GWP metrics to determine how they might influence GHG emissions and liabilities for New Zealand agriculture.  We welcome your inputs in February and throughout the year, when we can hopefully generate energy that is reflected as light, rather than heat.
