Farmers hold the key to climate change action in the United States
If you think about it, farmers should be on the cutting edge of climate change discussions: They are directly affected as weather patterns shift, and they have the opportunity be part of the solution by sequestering carbon. But American farm groups have mostly opposed climate policies. Longtime agricultural reporter Chris Clayton — who is ag policy editor at DTN/The Progressive Farmer — has written a book showing how this state of affairs took shape. It’s called The Elephant in the Cornfield: The Politics of Agriculture and Climate Change (available as an e-book).
