The Economist reports on a study on climate change and agricultural yields. The bad news: climate change is having a negative impact on yields. The good news: the change may be smaller than expected. The article is here.

And then there is this interesting news about the spread of drought insurance in Kenya, a country likely to experience stress from climate change. Perhaps this new development will put them in a better position to face the challenges of climate change. What is most interesting is the explosive expansion of cell phone use which made this development possible.
