Countryside must change to prepare for climate change, experts warn

The number of sheep and cattle in the United Kingdom should be reduced by between a fifth and a half to help combat climate change, a report says.

Chris Stark, chief executive of the CCC, defended the committee's support for biomass, the use of which has been criticised on the ground that it swallows up land that would otherwise support agriculture or nature.

"Land use policy is going to have to be fundamentally different than it has been since the war", he warned, saying the new Agriculture Bill drawn up as the United Kingdom leaves the European Union must carry numerous needed measures.

Lord Deben, who lives near Debenham, said: "We have an urgent need to change the way we use our land, and that is central to the battle against climate change". 'Maximise land use'It calls for the Government to move away from current European Union practices after Brexit to a new system where land is "maximised" as a natural store for carbon and as a regulator of natural hazards such as flooding. Government assistance is needed with skills, training and information to implement new uses of land. Such a move, the CCC argues, would support deeper emissions reductions and improve resilience to climate change impacts. "We will all need to play our part in reducing Manchester's carbon emissions - and will all share in the benefits of a healthier city when our goal is met".

The findings come after a similar study by WWF, which concluded that the agricultural sector can provide up to 30% of the solutions needed by 2030 to tackle the global climate crisis.

The report also estimates that up to 65 megatons of carbon dioxide, equivalent to up to around 15 per cent of current UK CO2 emissions, could be sequestered through combined biomass and carbon capture and storage (BECCS) plants.

But he also told Utility Week that the way biomass is used would have to be rationed in order to make the best use of a scarce resource.

However, the CCC argues in the report that biofuel uptake should be spurred within the carbon-heavy aviation sector in order to encourage the shift away from fossil fuels.

Similarly, it notes that biomass which is certified as sustainable could meet 5-15% of the UK's energy needs by 2050, if the nation "exploits" its organic waste streams efficiently. "Unsustainable supplies of biomass have no place in our future energy mix".

The report, which follows recent worldwide reports stressing the importance of making rapid reductions in global carbon emissions, outlines that all of the city's sectors will need to greatly reduce their carbon emissions, if the target is to be met. Such fuels reportedly generate up to three times the amount of emissions of fossil fuels, when a life-cycle analysis is applied.

"It's absolutely central to the battle against climate change".

"The potential for biofuels beyond the electricity sector is also set to grow as the United Kingdom heads towards a net-zero emissions economy".
