‘What’s Cooking’ Adaptation and Migration in the UK Food System

The research found that UK consumers could face dramatically reduced food choices in the future unless much more is done to cut greenhouse gas emissions. It also warns that foods which families now take for granted, such as meat and fresh vegetables, could become too expensive for many if global temperatures rise in line with the current trends and reach 4 degree C within the lifetime of many people.
