Experts Friday began negotiating the most comprehensive scientific assessment ever of the role the land we live off plays in climate change. It is expected to highlight the stark choices humanity faces to feed 10 billion people while preserving nature. The Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change special report on land use is expected to warn how industrialized food chains, rampant resource exploitation, and even efforts to stave off the worst effects of global warming, are jeopardizing our future.Industrial farming uses one-third of all land on Earth and up to 74 percent of fresh water.One of those is striking the right balance between land used for food and land used to mitigate global warming, such as forests and bioenergy projects.
