CCL Agriculture Action Team Webinar: The Politics of Agriculture and Climate Change

January 25, 2018

Join author Chris Clayton, who wrote the book, "The Elephant in the Cornfield: The Politics of Agriculture and Climate Change." He decided to write this book after the 2011 American Farm Bureau Federation annual meeting, where it was clear that members were dismissive of climate science and opposed to policies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Clayton helps CCLers understand what topics are unifying and divisive in farm country when discussing climate change, and he also suggests positive messages consistent with the idea that farmers can be climate heroes.
