Climate change and the future of our food
This podcast looks at how climate change will affect one of Australia's most popular dishes, spaghetti bolognaise. It is based on research from Appetite for Change, a MSSI report outlining the effects that climate change will have on the production, quality and cost of Australia’s food in the future.
Social researcher and author Rebecca Huntley uses the recipe for this very popular and accessible dish to highlight the varied threats to our future food supply from global climate change. A very personal look at the effect a warming climate might have on both our agricultural output and our consumption habits.
