Global Climate Change and the Wine Industry: Challenges and Options
This talk summarizes current scientific understanding of global climate change and its impacts around the world, with particular emphasis on wine-growing regions; it addresses the specific ramifications—ongoing and projected–for wine production; and it surveys briefly the options available to society for reducing the pace and ultimate magnitude of human-caused climate change and the options available to the wine industry for adapting to the changes that can no longer be avoided.
