Agricultural giant Cargill adapts to climate change

The Cargill company, a huge agricultural business is investing in northern U.S. facilities as they become more suitable to additional crops.  In regions of North Dakota, where once only wheat could be grown, now soybeans, canola, corn and field peas grow, thanks to longer, frost-free summers (Corn Belt edges northward as weather patterns shift).

In another StarTribune article, Cargill goes green at sea, it was noted that Cargill is working to reduce its carbon footprint, as it pledges to no longer use ocean-going ships with the poorest fuel efficiency.  They are working with the Carbon War Room to reduce their pollution.  The Carbon War Room harnesses the power of entrepreneurs to unlock market-driven solutions to climate change.
