Report: Why Pa. could see more chicken farming due to climate change

The Philadelphia Inquirer discusses why Pa. could see more chicken farming due to climate change.

Pennsylvania released an updated climate assessment report Monday showing that a continuing rise in temperatures and rainfall could affect everything from the number of chickens farmed to water quality.

The first climate assessment for the state was issued in 2009, with updates in 2013 and 2015. Those reports examined the effects of climate change on agriculture, energy, forests, human health, outdoor recreation, water, and aquatic resources.
