    The same idiots were predicting a global coffee shortage and corresponding “exorbitant price rises” about two/three years ago. Due to a drought in varous coffee growing regions.

    Never eventuated, of course.

    Most coffee species at risk of extinction due to climate change, scientists warn

    “scientists warn”. That’s much more serious than ‘scientists say’. I don’t think we should dismiss this lightly.

    Vladimir Putin is rubbing his hands together.
    All that space in Siberia where you can’t grow anything except straggly trees.
    Soon to be coffee heaven!

    oops – the drought was of course, due to gerbil worming.

    Scientists will warn in furtherance to their grant proposals, as usual.

    Not a cent.

    Wild coffee. OK. I am pretty sure wild coffee will look after itself, weed that it is.
    As for cultivated varieties, these scientist sure aren’t agricultural scientists. Perhaps they are scientists in the same way economists call economics a science instead of the art it really is.
    You would just selectively breed new varieties as the climate changed. Same for fruit that needs a certain number of chill nights to flower and fruit set. A decent breeding program would be able to breed new varieties quicker than the climate changes. And if you needed to go faster, gene edit.

    All fake news. The simplest of checking would have shown the significant increases in coffee yields as temperatures warm slightly. More likely a glut coming.

  8. If only climate change would make Their ABC extinct.

    How surprising (not) that the ABC took this angle – where are the high profile, high rotation stories about the environmental cost of ‘Straya’s addiction to coffee? We don’t get those sort of stories because it would be a very inconvenient truth for large chunks of the ABC’s rusted-on supporters.
