An outline of some of the issues that climate change in Wales will present to farmers in the next 25 years, as a result of global warming. Includes interviews with a Radnorshire-based farmer and a member of the Institute of Grassland and Environmental Research.
Discuss the role of farming in contributing to climate change and its subsequent effects. Use the clip to exemplify the differences between short-term effects (weather patterns) and longer term variations (climatic). Discuss how farming will have to diversify, and ask students to investigate how this could be done. Ensure that they seek to weigh the positive and negative effects of climate change.
