While climate variability represents a major management challenge for Mississippi farmers, “The issue of climate change that has received so much media attention has been more politics- and policy-driven than science-driven,” says Charles Wax, Mississippi state climatologist and professor, Department of Geo Sciences, Mississippi State University, who spoke at the annual conference of Mississippi Women in Agriculture. Global climate change may have little or nothing to do with mankind’s burning of fossil fuels and a lot to do with sunspot cycles and other natural phenomena that aren’t affected by greenhouse gases, he says.
