Video: Professor Timothy Lang on Climate Change and Food Production

Timothy Lang, Professor of Food Policy at City University London, talks about why we as individual consumers, and supermarkets as society's major food suppliers, must plan for a very different food future in a low carbon world.

Among other points, the former beef and sheep farmer singles out the Fife Diet movement (read the manifesto) as a good example of people successfully converting to a low carbon diet.

Fife dieters, of which there are now several thousand, eat only food from the Kingdom of Fife.
