Britain will become a net importer of wheat for the first time in a decade this year because of bad weather, the National Farmers’ Union has said.

NFU president Peter Kendall said more than two million tonnes of wheat had been lost because of last year’s poor summer.

The prolonged cold weather would also impact this autumn’s harvest, he said.

But he said the shortage was unlikely to affect the price of bread because of the global nature of the market.

Speaking on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, Mr Kendall said the average yield fell from 7.8 tonnes a hectare to 6.7 tonnes last summer…..(read more).

Highlighting the clip by James Hansen who says that humanity cannot adapt the climate change. Hansen proposes a fee for GHG emitters in order to clean up their atmospheric mess. This has in one form been implemented in Australia with a carbon tax. We’ll e releasing more of Hansen explaining his proposal in later releases.

James Hansen: Climate Change a Scientific, Moral and Legal Issue


ClimateState

Published on Dec 27, 2012

A great lecture aimed towards the general public by Dr. James (“Jim”) Hansen. He gives a clear and engaged description of the science and the challenges that lies ahead. One of the best talks I’ve seen.
The talk was recorded at James Hansen’s New Zealand tour in spring 2011 at the University of Otago, NZ. http://www.otago.ac.nz

The lecture draws much from the paper “The Case for Young People and Nature: A Path to a Healthy, Natural, Prosperous Future” by James Hansen, Pushker Kharecha, Makiko Sato, Paul Epstein, Paul J. Hearty, Ove Hoegh-Guldberg, Camille Parmesan, Stefan Rahmstorf, Johan Rockstrom, Eelco J.Rohling, Jeffrey Sachs, Peter Smith, Konrad Steffen, Karina von Schuckmann, James C. Zachos.

The paper can be downloaded from James Hansen’s homepage:
columbia.edu/~jeh1/mailings/ (under 2011)

Dr James E. Hansen is the director of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies

New study paper from Nov. 2012
