As delegates at the U.N. Climate Change Conference wrap up their first week of talks in Cancun, Mexico, we speak with Jack Hedin, a farmer from southern Minnesota who says that in the last decade he's seen the effects of climate change in the form of more frequent and violent rainstorms that are threatening his 250 acre farm where he grows vegetables and grain.
