One of the top items in agri-business in 2013--certainly in terms of pure dollars involved--was the sale of the "Big Data" weather insurance and analysis firm, the Climate Corporation, to Monsanto for almost $1 Billion. Climate Corporation chief executive officer, David Friedberg, was profiled in the November, 2013 issue of The New Yorker magazine by New Yorker reporter Michael Specter--and made some provocative comments regarding his company's findings on climate change impact after mining the I-don't-know-how-many terrabytes of data the company has done since it began about ten years ago.

Following are some excerpts from the Michel Specter article, titled "Climate By Numbers".
