As Climate Changes, Resilience Trumps Efficiency, Expert Says

As Climate Changes, Resilience

Trumps Efficiency, Expert Says

Dr. Laura Lengnick, author of "Resilient Agriculture: Cultivating Food Systems for a Changing Climate," keynotes today's annual "Celebration of Agriculture" at The Farmers' Museum's Louis Jones Center.  "Efficiency makes systems really easy to break," she said, using "just in time" distribution as an example:  Any breakdown along the supply chain disrupts the whole chain.  Farmers, she said, are can no longer depend on rainfall and temperatures and wind within general parameters.  Planners and academics studying future are concluding, "It's probably the regional scale that's the regional scale, not to the local scale," adding that New York State is on the cutting edge of such thinking and planning.  Today's program includes workshops throughout the day, all focus on climate change and farming.  (Jim Kevlin/AllOTSEGO.com)
