Appetite for Destruction
Venue: Lane Cove Library
Food production impacts our environment more than anything else we do.
Few of us realise that we are now in the midst of the "Sixth Great Extinction", and that our use of nitrogen is considered the greatest cause of environmental pollution.
This presentation by scientist Gerard Wedderburn-Bisshop examines the impact of food production on the systems that make our planet habitable. We examine biodiversity loss, deforestation, land degradation, nitrogen pollution, the oceans and climate and look at how diet can profoundly affect sustainability.
