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

Filed under: FoodEnvironmentScience!Viral: News

no title

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.

Leonardo DiCaprio Explains What Happened When He Met Donald Trump

<a href=

Despite his best efforts, Leonardo DiCaprio has not been able to convince Donald Trump of the reality of climate change.

And the Oscar winner is pissed!

In a recent Yale Climate Conference panel discussing his meeting with the then-President Elect in December, the actor told John Kerry how he tried reasoning with former The Apprentice host:

"We presented him with a comprehensive plan to tackle climate change, while also simultaneously harnessing the economic potential of green jobs. We talked about how the United States has the potential to lead the world in clean-energy manufacturing and research and development."

And Leo went on to say he believes history won't look back fondly on his Presidency because of it, slamming POTUS:

"We should not have people in office who do not believe in facts and truths and modern science that are able to manipulate and risk the entire future of this entire generation."

He's talking about you, Donnie!

DiCaprio continued:

"We are at that turning point right now, and we are going to look back at this point in history, and frankly this administration, and certain people are going to be vilified for not taking action. They really are. And it's up to this generation, it's up to all of you to get involved and make a difference."

What a scary time.

Totalitarian Trump Is Silencing Government Agencies — See How Some Renegade Twitter Users Are Already Fighting Back!

no title

This is insane.

As we reported, Donald Trump made an extremely totalitarian move yesterday by putting a freeze on all financial support to the Environmental Protection Agency while calling for a total media blackout — meaning, EPA employees are not allowed to post on the Agency's social media, answer journalists' questions, or send out press releases.

Various other government agencies are being subjected to the same silencing. It's a move straight out of page two of the dictator handbook.

Then a hero came along… (*'90s Mariah Carey voice*)

And by hero, we mean the ex-Badlands National Park employee who hijacked the organization's Twitter account to post a series of climate change facts… just as Drumpf was signing off on gag orders!! Yas!

The tweets made reference to climate change, something our new POTUS called a "hoax" on the campaign trail.

Are we really going to let this orange man tell us science isn't real just because he doesn't think his constituency would approve?!

Read what the disgruntled former employee had to say (below)!

The former running mate to John McCain in the 2008 presidential election, Palin was speaking at a Capitol Hill event for the film Climate Hustle, which is firmly anti-climate change and attempting to discredit climate scientists like Nye and many others.

The Science Guy stood up for his educated opinion by appearing in the documentary.

In her speech, Palin went right after the scientist and TV veteran, saying:
