I like how "environmental changes" are going to kill off everything, because, you know, the climate's never changed before or anything. Oh, wait. I'm pretty sure a lot of plant and animal species were around before previous climate shifts that are still alive today. Media doomsday speakers, I swear. Even if "global warming" occurs to the point of changing the terrestrial climate significantly I call bs on the coffee/chocolate extinction. Why? One word.

Greenhouses.

Look at that. The climate changes dramatically a good four times every year. We call them seasons. And when a certain crop doesn't grow in unfavorable weather...take it inside, control temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, etc... and you create artificially viable growing conditions. Really, how do you think you can get potatoes any time of the year?

Media scare to justify higher prices? Best marketing scheme ever.

If there's demand there'll be a way.

2 Thoughts:
- That seems to be a warning sign that coffee - also chocolate - prices will go up soon and they will claim that will be caused by the environment changes: More expensive venti for you!!!
- It's ridiculous the amount of coffe and chocolate that we (human beings) eat and drink. It's insane that one of the most consumed thing in the whole world IS COFFEE!!!!

Coffee.. who drinks it for the flavour!


I do!! I take it you've never had freshly ground coffee straight from Costa Rica NOMMY! Coffee is second most legally traded commodity in the world it will not go extinct there's too much money in it.

I'm sorry, but any "scientific" data that comes from a chain store so hopped up on its own ego that it charges outrageous prices for mediocre coffee, is asinine.

"i call bull poo. also, if the equator area gets too hot that means that formally colder places further north and south will get warmer and the conditions will be right to grow those plants there instead. duh."

Often plants require much more than a proper temperature to grow which makes this 'brilliant' idea null.

Report: "The ice caps are melting from climate change and will bring dramatic changes for future generations"
Reaction: "Hippy socialist tree hugger extremists suck and climate change is a conspiracy."

Report: "No more coffee from climate change"
Reaction: "Oh the humanity!!! If only we did more to stop this!!!"

Eh. They'll just figure out a way to grow it hydroponically and it'll be super expensive.

Jesus H. tittyfu#king Christ. Like I needed another reason not to go to Starbucks besides their shi#y coffee.

Coffee is VALUABLE. If it's valuable, they will find a way.

Hydroponics? Maybe, I dunno, MOVE THE COFFEE PLANTATION NORTH?

Oh, and until he can get his company to make a decent black coffee, which is its purpose, then perhaps they should concentrate there. I will only go to Starbucks if there is no alternative serving ground coffee, even McDonalds does better.

So, plants that survived through the Little Ice Age when it was (colder than today) and through the Mediaeval Warm Period (when it was a little warmer) in the wild are going to go extinct if the temperature rises by perhaps another half degree, despite human intervention in a hugely valuable crop. Riiiiiigghht.

So this comes from the "Director of Sustainability" from a company that makes vast profits from pretending to follow left-wing politics and the Union of Concerned Scientists.

The UCS, by the way, is an organisation that you can join if you have a valid credit or debit card. If they have since started to accept PayPal you might not even need that. It is nothing to do with science.

NO CAPPUCCINO WITH CHOCOLATE SHAVINGS :(

Meh, idk. in 30 odd years we'll have found a good substitute i'm sure, because fake tastes is the way we're going ahead.

@kairobert

There are plenty of scientists motivated to push the case for global warming. Firstly, if global warming weren't viewed as apocalyptic, then they wouldn't receive funding from various governments to study the climate. Who do you think pays for this stuff, or do you think they're just doing it for free? Secondly, they have biases like the rest of us. Anyone with even a modicum of science background knows that there are too many variables to predict global climate with a practical degree of accuracy, as so many things change year to year. Solar intensity, the makeup of the atmosphere, weather patterns in general. One year it may rain 20" in a region, and another it may rain 5". It's not consistent.

SCfan- That means he pays a lot of expert to watch out for threats to his company. He doesn't need to be an expert, he just needs to listen to them.
