Agriculture & Greenhouse Gas: the Goal to Reduce Emissions

Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions directly affect global warming and bring about climate change. It is no surprise that one of the most serious issues facing the world today is the rising levels of these gases in the atmosphere. While the energy sector is the leading source of GHG emissions, farming comes in second. We look at the measures being taken to reduce emissions and confront climate change, while continuing to develop a vibrant agriculture sector.

Our latest Energy trumps resource is available as a FREE bi-lingual download from the resources section of the CAT website. Fact files are available to download with each energy trumps card. Developed by Centre for Alternative Technology and updated in 2015, the Energy Trumps cards have been used from year 6 to adults. The set of 30 cards compare energy sources and ways of using the energy sources, in a scientifically rigorous but engaging way. In this Trumps game low impact wins. The cards can be played as a game and we have also developed extension activities.
