How will USDA balance the supply of food with the desired biofuel crops given the projected lower solar output during solar cycles 24 and 25 (proxy of lower sunspot counts - see deJager/Duwar, Cliver/Svaalgard, and now even Hathaway)?
Given frost zones have moved north 60-100 miles over the last 30 years, how will USDA help farmers adjust to the projected 120-150 mile swing back to the south and the likely effects on farmers abilities to grow crops they have become accustomed to growing in the last thirty years?
Will the focus and research around climate change be broad enough to help regardless of whether climate warms or cools?
