Agriculture & Climate Change

In the premiere episode of CPR President Rob Verchick’s Connect the Dots podcast series, he talks with CPR Member Scholar Laurie Ristino of Vermont Law School about the connections between climate change and food security, and how policymaking tools like the Farm Bill that could be better used to promote sustainable agricultural practices.

This is the first of a series of six podcast episodes on climate change and how it affects our lives. Subsequent episodes in the series examine climate-related dislocation and migration, preparing for climate-change-caused toxic flooding in the Chesapeake Bay watershed, keeping workers safe in the era of climate change, and litigation as a means to hold oil companies accountable for their outsized contribution to climate change.
