“Growers don’t have anything to harvest. That’s a disaster in my mind”

NC Media Watch: Another I told you so opportunity
Where is all the global warming that the Governor, Legislature and Al Gore are worried about? My guess is the farmers and grape growers in Nevada County would like to see some of it. So, where is it? Warming would not have damaged these crops. But cooling and cold destroy the food we eat, it is far more dangerous that a few degrees of warming. Soon we will all be praying for more warming.
A related article is here.

Local farmers are trying to recover from last week's freeze that decimated fruit, wine grapes and pastures, as the county's agricultural commissioner prepares to file for emergency relief from the state.

For many, last week's frost was the cruelest weather to hit local agriculture in a long time. The cold spell wiped out some crops by as much as 100 percent with financial losses reaching into the tens of thousands of dollars.
