    Isn’t it funny to listen and read about this terrible cliff that we are all headed over, from the left media and the democrats in general!? Aren’t they the very ones who swear up and down that raising taxes does NOT hurt the economy?

    Brew hoo! Coffee could disappear by 2080, researchers says

    Your morning cup of coffee might be a thing of the past because of global climate change, according to a new study.
    Almost all (99.7 percent actually) of Arabica coffee bean growing areas will be impacted by 2020 as global temperatures rise, according to the study from the Royal Botanic Gardens in England.
    “The worst case scenario is that wild Arabica could be extinct by 2080,” one of the researchers is quoted as saying in the Telegraph.
    That might not be so bad given that there is another species of coffee beans, Robusta, which is commonly found in freeze-dried coffee.
    Unfortunately, Arabica beans make up 70 percent of the global coffee market and are the only beans used to make the fresh coffee you have at home or anything that you would find at your local Starbucks.
    Researchers therefore suggest that big time coffee producers will be forced to invent cooling equipment and new irrigation techniques in order to sustain Arabica farms.
    Even if those techniques work, the flavor of coffee is sure to change and prices may rise because of shortages.
