As a gardener, you should be aware of climate change.

You should also know that there is a lot of misinformation out there on climate change, so be careful. A lot of folks get their news through Facebook or other social media, but their friends may share posts without investigating them first to see if the information is correct.

Parker does an excellent job and gives an easy-to-follow explanation. You should check it out.
