Climate Assessment Indicates Serious Changes for the San Joaquin Valley

The Fresno Council of Governments held a symposium Tuesday to mull over the findings of California’s recently issued Fourth Climate Change Assessment. Since its last assessment in 2012, the state has experienced several of the most extreme climate related natural events in its history. Unlike the Trump administration’s climate change denial, many Central Valley leaders are taking the study’s stark conclusions seriously. One of those conclusions is that the San Joaquin Valley’s environment and economy will be dramatically impacted by the end of the century. Vic Bedoian reports from Fresno.
