I’ve done numerous Food Forethoughts on the subject of climate change. Over the years I myself have had to adjust my outlook on climate change. Not long ago I spoke about a report that listed the economic risks of climate change in the U.S.. It painted a dire picture of what climate change left unchecked could do to the American economy and the effect it could have on ag production by mid-century and beyond. Society as a whole remains split on climate change, but one would have to be completely out of touch with reality to say that the climate is not changing; whether by naturally occurring phenomenon, man’s influence, or a combination of the two. This week world leaders gathered in New York for the UN Secretary-General’s Climate Leadership Summit.
