While lots of the Hurricane Michael coverage focused on what happened to the impacted coastal communities, perhaps not enough attention has been paid to its impact on Georgia agriculture. #Ecocentricity @johnalanierRCAF http://bit.ly/2pU7g3S

Summary

As I’m sure you know, Hurricane Michael recently slammed into the Florida panhandle and then made its way across South Georgia. While a lot of coverage of the storm focused on what happened to the impacted coastal communities (short story – they got hammered), I feel like there has not been enough attention paid to the impact of Michael on Georgia agriculture.

This is a short blog post. I’m not taking this week off, mind you. Rather, I recognize that there are times when I need to say less and let the experts say more. This is one of those posts.

My friend Marshall Shepherd, a climate scientist at the University of Georgia, wrote this piece on the issue for Forbes. Please give it a read. I’ll see y’all next week.
