This article, in response to the latest IPCC report released on March 31, 2014, encourages climate change adaptation at the local level as the most critical response. From the article: “So far, solutions pushed at the international level … will do more to increase company profits than provide lasting and achievable solutions for the small-scale farmers and their communities who produce the vast majority of the world’s food.”

The next installment of the IPCC Fifth Assessment Report will focus on pollution and be released next month.
