Wow!! Very, very interesting!

Consider the following excerpt from the text:

"In turn, these new scenario runs reveal, however, a large sensitivity of mapping climate change impacts from one crop to the other, which we will need to take into account in future research."

Is there a relationship between this finding and the fact that the climate will become more variable and unpredictable?

Hello! I am sorry for the very late reply. Thanks for your interest and question. I don't think there is a direct link, as we were working in this study on gradual climate change (30 year moving average) rather than the increased variability under climate change. Trade indeed importantly interacts with inter-annual variability in crop yields, and how this will be affected by climate change is a very interesting research topic of its own!
