Finally, a reason to really worry about climate change!


It May Eliminate Chocolate!

Here's the story from CBS. 

(UPDATE on 1-7-18)
And here's the actual story---
NOT REAL: Scientists expect chocolate to go extinct by 2050
THE FACTS: Widely shared stories on dozens of sites caused alarm among chocolate lovers, but the headlines go farther than the studies the stories cite. The accounts cite the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, which does say climate change will threaten cocoa production across the world. NOAA also referred to a 2014 report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which predicted "considerable reduction" in terrain suitable for cocoa production in Ghana and the Ivory Coast by 2050. But neither organization predicts the extinction of chocolate.
