Greg Page, retired chief executive of Cargill, knows some farmers and ranchers view climate change as part of a liberal agenda. But he says agricultural producers to join the discussion.
The North Dakota-native isn’t interested in a debate over whether climate change exists or what’s the cause.
"I don’t think we need to become zealots," Page says. "But given the criticality of being able to feed an ever increasing population, I think to be so sure that it’s not happening, that we do nothing or even talk about it or think about it is a mistake."
