Release Date 10 October 2012
Professor Richard Tiffin, director of the Centre for Food Security, and Professor Mike Gooding, head of the School of Agriculture, Policy and Development, gave a series of interviews following news that poor summer weather in the UK has led to a 15% decline in the wheat harvest.
Professor Tiffin told Channel 4 News in a live studio interview that the event should be a wake-up call for the world, showing how susceptible we are to climate-related shocks to food production. Interviews were also featured in the Guardian, ITV Meridian, and BBC Radio Berkshire.
