No More Chocolate! Scientists Warn Climate Change Is Putting Cacao Plants At Risk!

| Filed under: FoodEnvironmentScience!Viral: News

Thanks to climate change, even chocolate is no longer safe!

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicted in a 2016 report that based on climate change factors, cacao is going to be facing a real crisis in the next four decades!

See, chocolate can only be grown within 10 degrees of the equator because of specific temperature requirements. In fact, half the world's chocolate is produced by just two countries: Côte d'Ivoire and Ghana.

By 2050, those countries are looking at a 3.8˚F temperature increase, without the accompanying increase in rainfall of warmer countries! Not good for chocolate!

Thankfully, the Mars company is working hard on helping cacao adapt to the changes with the latest advances, including a new tech called CRISPR, which allows for very small changes to DNA. Whew!

While cacao is not exactly on the edge of extinction, difficulty in cultivation could obviously lead to increased prices in EVERYTHING with chocolate in it.

Something to think about the next time you think about your carbon footprint.

We hope Shailene Woodley ends up running for Congress one day, because she already sounds like the woke hippie millennial politician America needs!

In a new interview with Marie Claire UK, the actress and *activist* opened up about her arrest after protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline last October, admitting she felt like "a caged animal" during her short time behind bars.

Woodley, an outspoken critic of the crude oil pipeline, explained how the intensity of the peaceful protest at Standing Rock reached levels of a certain dystopian franchise she starred in.

She recalled spotting two U.S. military tanks walking back to her RV, thinking:

"I'm like, ‘This is some Divergent shit.' The only time in my life that I saw a tank like that was on set in Atlanta."

Unfortunately, the dramatic experience only got worse when the 25-year-old was arrested and charged with criminal trespassing and engaging in a riot.

The short time she spent in the slammer was anything but glamorous:

Donald Trump has always made the wrong calls, but withdrawing the U.S. from the Paris Climate Accord to try to "make a deal that's fair" to the U.S. is just so insanely wrong it's… well, it's absurd.

Thankfully, we know some folks who excel in the absurd — late night hosts!

First up, Jimmy Kimmel dropped some easy facts on the POTUS — mostly about how EVERYONE ELSE wanted to stay in, even major corporations like Exxon Mobil and Wal-Mart. As Jimmy says:

"Apparently these big companies ran the numbers, and it turns out if climate change destroys human life on Earth, it could be bad for business."

| Filed under: PolitikDonald TrumpLeonardo DiCaprioEnvironmentInstagram

Remember when Leonardo DiCaprio was willing to meet with President-elect Donald Trump to discuss clean energy and green jobs?

Yeah, those days are over.

Hour for hour, the Celebrity Apprentice star has been the worst POTUS we've ever had for the environment, culminating in his decision to withdraw the United States from the 195-country Paris Climate Accord.

We're guessing Leo won't be invited to any more closed door meetings as he had some understandably harsh words for Trump, accompanying a photo of the White House:

"Today, the future livability of our planet was threatened by President Trump's careless decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris Agreement."

Dammit.

Donald Trump just officially pulled the U.S. out of the Paris Climate Accord. The agreement, negotiated by 195 United Nations countries, was ratified in order to slow the damage being done to the environment.

But of course a man who doesn't believe in climate change at all — and who always makes the worst decision in every case — would declare it a "bad deal."

Here are his brief, money-centric words on the matter:
