It did not take long for the first potty climate story of the year to appear in the Mail!

Experts predict the world could run out of chocolate within 40 years because cacao plants are struggling to survive in warmer climates.

The trees can only grow within approximately 20 degrees north and south of the Equator – and they thrive under specific conditions such as high humidity and abundant rain.

But a temperature rise of just 2.1C over the next 30 years caused by global warming is set to wreak havoc for the plants – and in turn the worldwide chocolate industry, according to the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Meanwhile, back in the real world:

I’m not sure who is claiming that there will be a temperature rise of 2.1C in the next thirty years. This is away with the fairies stuff.

 

The Mail goes on to make this ridiculous claim as well:

As the mercury rises and squeezes more water out of soil and plants, scientists believe it is unlikely that rainfall will increase enough to offset the moisture loss.

They might not have noticed, but these equatorial regions are some of the wettest and most humid places in the world. If anything, they will get wetter in a warming world, not drier.
