Climate and greenhouse basics

Climate risk, climate change, pricing carbon and carbon farming are now major political and social forces that impact on all industries, including dairy. It is important to understand these issues for your business.

Understanding climate risk, the climate change debate, and how it affects you, requires some understanding of what drives climate and weather, predictions about future climate(s), and the greenhouse gases the dairy industry emits.

This section summarises all that complexity and presents it in ways that are useful for those who are involved in and/or interested the Australian dairy industry.
