Global Warming and Agriculture: New Country Estimates Show Developing Countries Face Declines in Agricultural Productivity


  • William R Cline


There is a growing recognition that global warming is a problem, but little attention has been paid to the likely impact at the country level, especially in the developing world. The stakes for world agriculture, with special attention to China, India, Brazil, and the poor countries of the tropical belt in Africa and Latin America are discussed.
