The following sentence is in the Intro section (second sentence of second paragraph, as of 04-Sept-2014). To me, the meaning is unclear:

______________________

India's geography and geology are climatically pivotal: the Thar Desert in the northwest and the Himalayas in the north work in tandem to effect a culturally and economically break-all monsoonal regime.

_______________________

I would do an edit, but I'm not sure what it is saying. What is 'break-all'? Assuming it's an adjective, does it go with 'culturally and economically' or with 'monsoonal regime'? Also what is a 'monsoonal regime'? I can guess at the meaning, but am not sure how it ties in with 'culturally and economically' in this sentence. I'm not a grammar snob. When a statement requires so much guesswork, it's not very useful.
