    Kiss Chocolate Goodbye?

    Chocolate could run out within 30 years because of climate change

    Zoe Drewett, 2 January 2018 (Metro)

    “Experts fear the world could totally run out of chocolate in the next thirty years…The cacao tree thrives in humid, rainforest-like conditions, relying on heavy rainfall close to the equator…But the threat of rising temperatures over the next three decades means a loss in moisture in the ground which scientists say will not be made up for by rain. A temperature rise of just 2.1C over the next 30 years caused by global warming could spell an end for the chocolate industry worldwide, according to the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

    Farmers in countries such as Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana – which produce more than half of the world’s chocolate – now face a decision over whether to move cacao production areas thousands of feet uphill into mountainous terrain which is carefully preserved for wildlife. But a move of that scale threatens to destroy their already dying ecosystems…The typical Western consumer eats an average of 286 chocolate bars a year…For 286 bars, producers need to plant 10 cacao trees to make the cocoa and the butter – the key ingredients in the production of chocolate…[S]upply has not kept up and stockpiles of cocoa are said to be falling…[A chocolate deficit of 100,000 metric tons per year may emerge] in the next few years…” click here for more
