CCGH Climate Change & Agriculture with Professor Hoffman

Climate Change & Agriculture: Just how secure is our food supply? with Professor Mike Hoffman

Please join the The Cornell Club of Greater Hartford for an exciting presentation by Michael P. Hoffmann, Executive Director, Cornell Institute for Climate Change and Agriculture and Professor in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.

The climate is changing – it is getting warmer and the evidence is all around us. Springs are arriving earlier, summers are hotter and winters are warmer. There’s more severe weather and shifts in precipitation patterns. Changes and greater variability in the weather will make it more challenging for food growers locally and globally, and will have profound implications for favorite like coffee, chocolate, and wine, as well as the security of our interconnected and interdependent global food supply.

Professor Hoffmann will describe the changes that are occurring due to human-caused climate change and examples of what Cornell is doing to help ensure food security into the future. Enjoy light refreshments, great company and a true Cornell academic experience.
