A professor from Kansas State University has been chosen to serve on an international panel on climate change.

Chuck Rice is a distinguished professor of agronomy. He'll be one of two lead authors from the U.S. for a chapter on agriculture in a report by the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

The report is expected to be released in 2014.

Rice calls the job a "tremendous honor and responsibility." He says policymakers worldwide must be equipped with the best and latest scientific information as they respond to climate issues.
