The latest UK government climate change predictions, UKCP18, found British summer temperatures could be 5.4°C higher by 2070 while average rainfall is expected to fall by 47% over the same period. Sea level rise is likely to be around 1.15m in the Thames Estuary by 2100.
Recycling most urban wastes to farm land, reducing the use of manufactured fertilisers, particularly Nitrogen (manufacture has s very high energy cost) can raise yields, reduces irrigation need, reduce crop disease and lock up Carbon. And the green leaf takes Carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere and gives us Oxygen back! Only farming can do this. Far from being difficult with regulation, our children will not forgive us if we do not actively promote and enable this. No just nice words, real action to enable is necessary.
