I found this report extremely informative and non-biased. It illustrates the would-be benefits of greenhouse gas legislation upon farmers.

However, I would be really interested in hearing what others think, particularly local farmers. What are your reactions to this report and to the possibility of stricter regulations of greenhouse gas emissions? How are you dealing with the affects of global climate change? What could we do as a community to support you?

Thanks for sharing.

That's a good question Emma.  Since my farming routine consists of growing cilantro in my windowsill, I'd also like to hear what local farmers think of this or if they have any special techniques for dealing with hotter seasons (though this summer was mild).
 
That's a very big dog. I think I want to go home now and hug this tiny ad:
