Cline Discusses Global Warming and Agriculture

William R. Cline, Peterson Institute

InfoShop at the World Bank, Washington, DC

December 13, 2007


Summary

The Peterson Institute and the InfoShop at the World Bank held a discussion meeting at which William R. Cline discussed his conclusions in his latest book, Global Warming and Agriculture: Impact Estimates by Country.

William Cline asserts that developing countries have more at risk than industrial countries as global warming worsens. Using general circulation and agricultural impact models, Cline boldly examines 2070–99 to forecast the effects of global warming and its economic impact. This detailed study outlines existing studies on the agricultural impact of climate change; estimates projected changes in temperature, precipitation, and agricultural capacity; and concludes with policy recommendations.
