Delivering a speech on climate change projections for the UK, Secretary of State Michael Gove MP highlighted the growing role farmers will have to play in global food production while still adapting to tackle climate change.

Speaking at the Met Office’s launch of the UK Climate Projections earlier this week, Michael Gove discussed the effects climate change will have on the environment both in the UK and across the globe if measures are not taken to address issues such as greenhouse gas emissions and rising sea levels.
