Episode Seven: ‘The Future of Energy’

 

In the face of new stringent emission and environmental targets, Ireland’s economy and society will be forced to adapt, changing the way we all live and work.

However when 30% of our current emissions come from agriculture, is the current method and scale of our food production really sustainable for the future.

In this episode Duncan will look at the latest agricultural science and technology that is addressing the challenge of making farming more sustainable. He will also visit Irish farmers and farming communities who are trying to make the shift to a more sustainable form of food production.

This episode will ask if Ireland is on the right track with their agriculture policy, and if Irish farmers should be considering a new approach for civilisation’s oldest industry.
