IPN Opinion article
It is no surprise that weather and harvests are connected but, especially in the case of African agriculture, it is unreasonable to assume that climate is the dominant, let alone the only, factor. Yet this is what these scientists seem to believe.

It is wrong, however, to suggest that the climate alone determines whether Africa’s agriculture will thrive or fail. That will be is a matter of economics, management and economic freedom.
