In November, I attended the Georgia Climate Conference at Emory University and moderated a session on agriculture and climate change. We had some really interesting discussion on how important farming is to the Georgia economy and how farmers need to be part of the conversation about how we deal with the changes we are seeing in climate in Georgia and the world. Here are a couple of recent articles I have seen which discuss both the impacts of changing climate on farmeres and how farmers are part of the solution.
