BOISE -- State officials, farmers, and winery and restaurant owners took to the Boise Farmers' Market on Saturday to call for action on addressing climate change.

The group says Idaho farmers are facing an unsure future, thanks to extreme weather and drought brought on by, what they say is climate change. And now they want Idahoans and the state government to take action to try to reverse the trend that they say is endangering this state's food supply.

It's a personal responsibility, it's our responsibility as a community, it's a responsibility as a governmental entity said Senator Cherie Buckner-Webb. We all have responsibility in ensuring that this bountiful table that we're able to appreciate in Idaho continues.

Meanwhile, others say the current heat and drought is all part of the natural cycle of weather in this area.
