MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas State University is holding back-to-back conferences on climate change this week.

The first gets under way Wednesday and will address how climate change will affect agriculture and rural communities. Called "Adapting to a Changing Climate on the Central Great Plains," the conference will feature the latest science and options for preparing for warmer temperatures.

On Thursday, Kansas State will host an event called Sustaining Kansas: The 2012 Kansas Higher Education Sustainability Conference. The featured presenter will be Nancy Jackson, founder and chairwoman of the Lawrence-based Climate and Energy Project.
