Posted:
FIREBAUGH, Calif. (KMPH) -

President Obama traveled to the farm of Joe Del Bosque in Firebaugh on Friday, February 14th.

The president spoke for about 12 minutes and talked about funds being made available to help farmers, growers and residents hurt by the drought.

Part of the focus of the speech concerned climate change. "A changing climate means that weather related disasters like droughts, wildfires and storm floods are going to be costlier and they're going to be harsher," said President Obama.

The president also said his administration is committed to cooperate with local and state officials in California and other western states suffering from the drought.
