Grapevines in Paso Robles being irrigated on February 11, 2022. The warming climate threatens the water supply for California farmland.

On this week’s Valley Edition, a bonus episode – a collaboration from the California Newsroom entitled Climate Costs: A public radio special exploring the high price of climate change for California communities

Hosted by KVPR’s Kerry Klein, with contributions from eight public radio newsrooms in California, we bring you stories of the challenges brought on by climate change. We’ll visit the Northern hemisphere’s largest geothermal field, a Native American reservation in the Eastern Sierra, a Central Coast city grappling with the loss of its coastline, and a region where acres and acres of orange groves are being replaced with warehouses.
