Living Planet: Our CO2 problem

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 17:55:00 GMT

Living Planet: Energy

Thu, 2 Nov 2017 11:51:00 GMT

Energy production and use account for about two-thirds of all greenhouse gas emissions worldwide. And carbon dioxide makes up the majority of those emissions. That means energy is a major driver of global warming. So how can we drastically cut these emissions and at the same meet the world's growing energy demands? Luckily, there are plenty of options.

Living Planet: Agriculture

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 16:50:00 GMT

Agriculture is one of the major contributors to global warming - it accounts for about a quarter of greenhouse gas emissions. As the global population continues to grow, so too does our demand for food, and the need for land on which to grow it. So, how do we meet this demand and at the same time reduce our emissions?
