Climate Change Insanity: NOAA Study Claims Chocolate Will Become Extinct by 2050
IWB ^ | Chris Black

Posted on 01/03/2018 6:32:52 AM PST by davikkm

If you’re a chocolate lover like most of normal people out there, boy, do we have bad news for you: according to an official (as in governmental) report courtesy of NOOA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association), due to anthropogenic (as in man-made) climate change/global warming/whatchamacallit, by the year 2050 chocolate will become a thing of the past. Why? Well, due to climate change driven by your gas guzzler, your air conditioner, your latest iPhone or whatever, growing cacao trees will become next to impossible in the not-so-distant future, hence chocolate will suffer the fate of the dodo bird. That means, it will become extinct. Gone. Forever. And ever.

Unfortunately, this is not a joke, but a taxpayer funded so-called study which is aimed at scaring the masses of sheeple into embracing Al Gore’s theory about catastrophic climate change due to, well, our lavish life-styles or whatever. Basically, if you want your children to have chocolate 30 years from now, you’d better start believing what our Lord and Savior, the inventor of internet (that’s Al Gore), has to say.

What worries me is that Al Gore predicts that the ice caps will be completely gone by 2013. And Paul R. Ehrlich predicts that by the mid-1980s, hundreds of millions of people will be starving to death due to overpopulation.

And the Church of the SubGenius predicts that the world will end in 1998.

Cacao trees *are* in trouble, though the cause is almost certainly not AGW. While the Wiki article cites “climate change” as a partial reason for concern, no actual citation is given nor is any explanation for what the exact problem is. Genetic diversity is also cited, and much more likely to be an issue, since the Cacao tree is heavily cultivated.

Unmentioned in the OP is that while the Cacao tree is originally native to Central and South America, the vast majority of chocolate production comes from the Ivory Coast and Ghana, which together make up 50% of total chocolate production. Given the inherent instability of any African country, as well as more recent problems like Boko Haram, the real threat to chocolate production has nothing to do with climate, and everything to do with what the French termed “C’est L’Afrique”. Finding new regions where the Cacao tree can grow, that aren’t so ephemeral, is probably the better strategy.

Lol. I will be 82 and hankering for a hunk of chocolate that will be nowhere in sight.

Actually with my waist size I will have been dead 10 years but will have enjoyed many many meals :-)

from Wikipedia:

"Theobroma cacao, also called the cacao tree and the cocoa tree, is a small (4–8 m (13–26 ft) tall) evergreen tree in the family Malvaceae,[2] native to the deep tropical regions of Central and South America."

Heretofore, we have been told that "global climate change/warming" was going to result in a huge INCREASE in the number of "deep tropical regions" on this planet. Wouldn't that mean MORE chocolate?

They’ve known for about 25 years that some kind of fungus or blight has been devastating cacao trees and causing the availability to decrease and price to rise. But that’s pathogenic not climate related.
But to a liberal all problems are climate related.

If the temp rises in the areas now used for growing cocoa, the areas will move North, and the crops will continue.

Same goes for bananas, and anything else now grown in tropical climates.

In a few billion years the Sun WILL expand and destroy the Earth. Then there will be no chocolate for anyone.

Hey, at least we’ll still have caffeine which is only one methyl group different from chocolate (theobromine). When caffeine is metabolized that methyl group is removed and the metabolic byproduct is theobromine. Drink caffeine and you metabolize chocolate. Cheers and bring on another cup of java.
