How Will Global Warming Impact the San Joaquin Valley?
Rising global temperatures aren’t just an international concern, they’re also an important local issue, especially when it comes to public health. How will climate change affect everything from rates of asthma and valley fever to wildfires and natural disasters?

But it’s not all doom-and-gloom. Marsa also tells us that many communities are embracing solutions that can help us survive a warmer future.
