The New York Times reports that Dr. M.S. Swaminathan, a leading expert on Indian agriculture and the Green Revolution, has stated that India food security is at risk.  He blames the cause on global warming.  Temperatures are rising in India and drought is becoming more regular.  In future decades, water will be more scarce.  At the same time, population is increasing at a rapid rate.  Scientific solutions are needed to provide enough food to ensure food security.
