Contra Costa Times recently published an interesting story about what farmers in California think about climate change.  You can access the article here.  The article points out what most farmers already know, that their activities and viability are closely tied to weather and climate, and that it’s not just local climate changes that are impacting their livelihood, since they are competing in a global marketplace.  Farmers in California are already taking steps to protect their farms from the vagaries of the weather as well as to adapt to new technologies that may improve their farms’ bottom lines in the future.
