(p.30) Chapter Two Agriculture, Forestry, and Fishing
Climate Change in California

Climate change is expected to present a wide range of challenges to California agriculture, forestry, and fishing, some of which (e.g., CO2 fertilization) are expected to be positive, while others (e.g., heat stress on livestock) will be unambiguously negative. As this chapter makes clear, there is no consensus yet on whether the net impacts at lower levels of warmingwould be largely positive or negative, though there is agreement that they would be uneven across crops and regions. In principle, agriculture and forestry could be highly adaptive and resilient, but increasing adaptive capacity will require striking a better balance between private-sector adaptation and public-sector research and extension assistance.
