It's not easy being green: Making European farming more sustainable (part 2)

Description

It's not easy being green... or is it? In this out-and-about edition of Talking Europe, we're looking at how well EU countries have been doing on one of the major contributors to carbon emissions: farming. In this part of the show, we're in Alsace, on the French side of the Franco-German border. While Germany is a big agricultural player in Europe, France is even bigger: almost half of its land is given over to farming and France is the number one recipient of EU farm subsidies.

Should the food we eat be on the same negotiating table as the cars the EU sells? Mercosur, JEFTA, CETA... behind these opaque terms lie deals with Latin America, Japan and Canada. What does Europe's farming sector think about them? Are they the pathway to a land of opportunity, or a Trojan horse letting in unfair competition?
