Farms are changing to adapt to changing climate.

Farmers Adapt to and Mitigate Climate Change Effects

At our Spring Growth Conference one panel discussion was held on how farmers are acting now to adapt to changing weather.

Many of these farmers are former farm apprentices who are now successful farmers.

Evidence?

I mean real statistical evidence thaqt indicates change. Leftists never discuss global warming or even say it anymore because it doesn't exist. Climates change over the centuries in cycles, but that's not what you're talking about. You're talking about your liberal desires to destroy Western Civilization.

Apparently your bunch couldn't afford to pay any academic prostitutes.

I'll take Monsanto.

While I also do not believe in climate change, I'd love to know what specifically they are doing to overcome it. Because I am using the same techniques and materials (fertilizers, tools, methods) as I was using down in RI several years ago, and it's still working great for me.

Sounds like the Spring Growth people needed a new topic to address at their conference, and latched onto "climate chamge" as something that "everybody" would be concerned with.

If you find that "climate change" stuff is workin' out well for ya, I say go with it!

Climate is always changing.

When I was a teen Al Gore's 'Nuclear Winter' was all the rage, years later it became whatever it is today. He gives his speeches and sells books either way.

No two years have the same weather.

You ask for 'evidence', Do you doubt these farmers exist? Do you doubt that they attended a conference? The article explains what they are doing.



I am not in favor of Monsanto, much of what they do violates my religious beliefs. However you are free to do as you please.

The Real Headline:

"Hippies With Big Gardens That Call Themselves Farmers Hope To Get Attention By Saying They're Changing To Adapt To Changing Climate."

They're more like gardeners, Sub. And as a poster thinks you're being political associating you with some kind of left leaning agenda, anyone that knows you knows you're far from it.

I gather that the "evidence" that HiW requested, was of climate change, not the existence of the farmers! I think he was likewise being sarcastic about Monsanto. I certainly avoid Monsanto, as much as possible! Getting harder to avoid them.

If you can produce enough food on your land to financially support yourself and your family. Then you can call yourself a turnip if you wish. I do understand that to many people a farmer must have 1,000+ acres, and a job in town to support the 'farm'.

Whether you wish to call them 'gardeners' or 'farmers' so long as they are doing it, what difference does it make?

I agree they are mostly hippies; some lean liberal and some lean conservative. A few Mennonites are in the bunch also.

I always find it funny when people who have absolutely no climate science education make statements like "I don't BELIEVE in climate change, as if climate change is a religion or a point of view that you can choose to BELIEVE in.

Start with reading some hard papers if you can understand the statistics and the math. Do NOT read regurgitated s*it that someone else "done" with a different end in mind - these almost always have an agenda.

Anyways, I would start here: Dr. James E. Hansen — Publications - read the papers and think for yourself. I would try and post papers that deny any of this but they are pretty hard to find.
