Nothing but liberal lies, probably started by George Soros.

Liberal lies? George Soros? Actually no.

The Koch Brothers have sent at least $88,810,770 directly to 80 groups denying climate change science since 1997.

Then there's this article from the Guardian about who funds the network of climate change deniers. Read more at:

Locally, wheat production is threatened by sawflys and the above gene.

Honestly, the in-vogue lazy-ass tactic of not using our critical thinking skills and blaming every "the sky is falling" crisis on climate change is getting old and annoying. While climate change is a real issue, it's lazy to just apply the label and not do the thinking necessary to change our management.

In spite of Congress being full of anti-science bigots, the USDA is actually doing considerable research on what changing climate patterns are going to have on all agricultural production across the country.
