The article presents an interview with Johann Tasker, publisher and editor of "Rural Focus," concerning the output of greenhouse gases in Great Britain. Tasker cites that agriculture and forestry is the second largest source of greenhouse gases in the country. He believes that farming's main contribution to carbon saving is likely to be through the production of alternative energy and materials.
