Climate One

“One of the advantages that we have in studying impacts on agriculture is that a lot of people have been paying really close attention to how climate affects agriculture for a long time,” said Noah Diffenbaugh, Associate Earth Sciences Professor at Stanford University. Some crops, such as corn and grapes, are very sensitive to severe heat, and the likelihood of severe heat has already increased in many parts of the world.
