Global Drought, Food Production and another heat record

Global Drought, Food Production and another heat record

Jason Sole discusses another month of temperature records set globally (see link below)  and the impacts it is beginning to have on various locations around the globe (see link below). He also discusses the report released recently regarding the stress on the agricultural industry (see link below) in providing food for a growing human population and how it is related to increasing global temperatures. Jason also talks about how commonplace drought is becoming and proposes an alternative to both climate change mitigation, water conservation, improved farming methods. We also interview Gerhard Koen who proposes the use of microbes for soil restoration and satellite monitoring. (See full interview on link below)
