A Georgia clam farmer worries about the climate

Yale Climate Connections had an interesting story this week about how warmer ocean temperatures and more acidification are affecting folks who harvest clams along the Georgia coast.

He is also worried about more frequent hurricanes, which could cause damage to the clam beds. You can listen to the story or read more here.
