Agriculture in a Warmer World
A discussion sponsored by the Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture (CUESA)

What will happen to local farms as the effects of climate change become more pronounced, and what will it mean for Bay Area consumers? How will climate change impact food supply, food distribution, and food security around the world? Join CUESA as two researchers present their perspectives on these questions.

Presenters:
Dr. Michael Hanemann, Director of the California Climate Change Center at UC Berkeley and Chancellor’s Professor of Environmental Economics and Policy
Dr. David Lobell, Senior Research Scholar at Stanford University’s Program on Food Security and the Environment

When: Thursday, February 28, 6:30 to 8:30 pm (reception with light refreshments at 6:30, discussion at 7)
Where: Port Commission Hearing Room, 2nd floor of the Ferry Building, San Francisco

This event is free and open to the public. It is part one of a two-part series on global climate change and food. Stay tuned to http://www.cuesa.org for the announcement of part 2: Climate-Friendly Eating.
