  • Is the New Farm Bill an Opportunity or Threat for Specialty Crop Growers?  

    2019-01-22

    Hurricanes, wildfires, and trade — how much more can you sustain? If we let science speak its peace, then the environment is critical to our future for many reasons. Climate change is a fact. Hurricanes are a part of our climate, and their frequency and intensity are growing. Droughts in Africa and beyond have become more common and destructive. Science is gaining ground on understanding the threat we face from global warming. The science suggests we need to do more to combat climate change. Water, trade, and immigration also pose threats to our future. Buckle up — the task we face in developing new technologies to answer these threats is enormous.
