The push for climate-minded policies at the state and federal level is getting stronger than ever. Countless proposals are being floated - from carbon emission reduction and renewable energy technologies to farm conservation programs and water quality. However, all these efforts currently overlook or miss a key point: their impact on - or usefulness to - specialty crops like fruits, vegetables and tree nuts.
