Famine and Global Warming?

Read this insightful article on cyclical famine in places like Africa. Consider Greg Easterbrook’s recent article in Atlantic Monthly about the poverty-sustaining nature of global warming, where he argues the poorest countries are the hardest hit. Consider alongside this fact that China has now succeeded the US in harmful emmissions.

How do we respond? Do you think that Easterbrook is correct in his analysis of Global Warming and poverty-ridden countries? Could it be that politically liberal issues should be more central for political conservatives?
