There is also global concern about the issue: in a recent Pew poll, majorities in all 40 nations polled said that climate change was a serious problem, and a global median of 54% said that it was a very serious problem.

But there is widespread disagreement about what —if anything—should be done in response. The way we produce food and manage land must change radically if humans hope to avoid catastrophic global temperature rise, according to a new report by the United Nations panel on climate change.

For example, the uncertainty in precipitation change over India arises partly from the expected weakening of the dynamical monsoon circulation (decreasing the Indian monsoon precipitation) versus the increase in atmospheric water content associated with warming (increasing the Indian monsoon precipitation; Meehl et al.
