Why it’s a must-read

The New York Times article “In this era of climate change, agriculture is the most critical area of focus.

As a result, agriculture in the U.S. is on the front burner.”

— Dr. Mark Lynas, Cornell University Agricultural Extension director and author of The Crops of America, “In an age of climate damage, agriculture represents the most vulnerable of all sectors.

As the planet warms, the impact of climate disruption on agriculture is more immediate and severe.”

— David Ruhlman, director of the Earth Institute, Cornell Cooperative Extension.

“We know that we need to make a lot of changes in our agricultural practices.

In order to be successful in meeting the challenges of climate, we need smart policies and technology that can adapt to changing conditions.”

— Steve Jones, president and CEO, Global Solutions.

“The climate is changing faster than we’ve ever seen it.

We need to think about how we’re going to adapt, not just how to adapt to climate change.

The future is very bright.”

— Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla.

“In the next decade, we’ll be in a position to have a much better understanding of the climate and its impact on the agriculture sector.

There will be a lot more knowledge to be gained from that.”

— Tom Schaeffer, president, the Center for Food Safety.

“This is the future we are heading into.

The most urgent need is adaptation.

If we don’t do something now, we could see this crisis come to our doorstep tomorrow.

This is what we need.”

— Bill McKibben, author of the book Climate of Hope: An Economic Blueprint for a Green New World.

“Climate change is a crisis of epic proportions.

It will make it harder for us to meet our commitments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

We have to do something to prepare ourselves and to adapt.

We’ve got to be proactive.”

— Jim DeMint, former chairman of the U,S.

Senate and now director of Heritage Action for America.

“It’s a wake-up call that there is no substitute for action.

It’s the most urgent challenge facing the planet.

If people are not doing something now to adapt and prepare for climate change and its impacts, the world will continue to lose billions of dollars and hundreds of thousands of lives.

It would be a tragedy if we were not to take actions to make sure that this future is not going to be the end of us.”

— Richard Biehl, chairman and CEO of The New Climate Economy, which focuses on agriculture and sustainability.

“Our society has already been severely damaged by climate change; climate change is just a new chapter in that.

There’s no doubt that we must take serious action to protect the future of agriculture and to address climate change in the process.”

— Bob Cargill, chairman, American Soybean Association.

“If we don, the damage to our climate and food supply is going to become more and more significant.”

— Michael Shellenberger, CEO of Shellenbaugh Farms.

“Farmers have already experienced an enormous price shift from corn and soybean.

We know that the price of these crops is going up because of climate changes, and we need a solution that’s going to allow us to survive this climate change.”

— John L. Smith, senior fellow at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.

“One of the big things that we’re seeing is an economic collapse in the agriculture industry because of this.

The economic impact of this is not only financial but it’s also societal.

It is not just a financial crisis.

This impacts all levels of our economy, including agriculture.”

— Ben Zawisza, president of the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association.
