Threatening monsoons

PAKISTAN'S agriculture dominated economy may be crippled by increased variation in monsoons over the next 50 years as a result of global warming, fears the director of the Pakistan Institute of Environmental Development Action Research, according to a Panos report by Najma Sadeque.

With the expected doubling of atmospheric carbon, average monsoon rainfall in the region could increase by 17 to 59 per cent, resulting in unprecedented floods.
