Pandemic side-effects offer glimpse of alternative future on Earth Day 2020

Last week the IPCC called for an overhaul of our global food production system to help fight climate change, and tackling food waste was one component of this.
In its special report on Climate Change and Land, the IPCC called for urgent change to farming practices, land use and dietary habits in order to maintain global food security, and to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
