Tale 1: The Demise of Starbucks as ….

Coffee and chocolate disappear due to global warming. That’s the message from Starbuck’s Director of Sustainability. So says CBS News: Coffee likes a pretty narrow range of temperatures, and one of the hallmarks, really, of climate change will be increased extremes in temperatures, Todd Sanford, a climate scientist from the Union of Concerned Scientists, said.

Those of us who enjoy our morning cup of coffee may not always realize that future climate change due to extreme temperatures, increased precipitation, really could in some ways put that at risk, the Director of Sustainability added. So for coffee lovers, the idea of waking up without their morning brew could be a wake-up call to lead a more eco-friendly life.

This is the second time in less than a month that scientists have warned that climate change threatens a favorite food item. A few weeks ago, we were told it will be too hot by the year 2050 to grow cocoa beans in much of the Ivory Coast and Ghana, the world’s main cocoa-producing countries.


Well vodka distills well in cold weather, so it’s a fair trade.
