Too bad it takes devastation in the US before our country MIGHT wake up and smell the climate change (that I might add, is disproportionately affecting developing countries - see here and here and here ). This is yet another reason why it's a bad, bad thing for the rest of the country to be so dependent on produce from California. I hate buying strawberries from the other side of the country - but that's the only thing that's ever sold in the grocery store!
If you haven't done so already, please sign the Food Democracy Now petition. They do good work.
