According to The Climate Institute, climate change could negatively affect the world’s coffee supply.– This is scary. First, climate change came for our lobsters. Then, it started threatening the crops. But coffee can’t stay much longer away from our cold, dead hands.
A new report by The Climate Institute has combined several studies that link climate change with the depletion of the world’s coffee supply. The troubling report points to disappearing farm lands and the rise of diseases and insects that compromise the coffee plants.
Caffeine-addicts aren’t the only downside, of course. The report notes that over 125 million people rely on the coffee industry to survive and coffee is a huge player in certain economies where the beans are a major export.
Peet’s Coffee vice president Doug Welsh, who’s also a board member of the World Coffee Research, affirmed to the Times. “It’s anecdotal, but I don’t know any coffee farmers who don’t believe that their weather, and with it, their disease and productivity issues, have changed dramatically over the last decade.”
Should everyone pressure world leaders to do something and save society’s precious love?
Are you worry about running out of coffee?
