The article presents a forecast on the effects of global warming by 2100. David Battisti, a climatologist at the University of Washington, stresses that there is 90 percent chance that average temperatures in the tropics and subtropics will be higher than the hottest heat waves, and more than 3 billion people living in those areas who rely on produced crops will be deeply affected. The effects on other countries as well as the suggested scientific and economic solutions are presented.
