2018 Transition Wilmslow Lecture

We had a full house at The Wilmslow Guild for Professor Sarah Bridle’s lecture on food and it’s impact on climate change, and plenty of people brave enough to try freeze dried  meal worms and crickets! Sarah is Professor of Astrophysics at the University of Manchester, and told us about her work  using big data analysis techniques to calculate the greenhouse gas emissions and nutrition of our food choices. Beef, lamb and dairy products contribute most to climate change, and changing our diets can really make a difference. There were some horrifying statistics about the impact of food waste too! Sarah’s slides are on her project website http://www.ggdot.org (scroll down to the bottom) and you are invited to put your details on the “join us” section to receive project updates so eventually you will be able to accurately track the impact of your daily food choices on the climate!
