QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong; Is it true that the Global Cooling has been creeping lower and lower into Northern Florida that the citrus crops are being affected to the point that they are starting to switch to olives?
ANSWER: Yes, that is true. Florida here has not been devasted by the heat as up north. However, at the same time, during the winter it did get cold enough that some of the plants I had in my front yard died. This is happening to the citrus trees in the northern part of the state as well. There has been a shift to planting olive trees which can withstand the cold. This seems to be part of the cycle behind climate change and global cooling. It snowed last year in Tallahassee. If you are coming to Florida, stay south of Orlando. You may find that you could still be shoveling snow in Jacksonville.
