Women, minorities and third world starvation trumped by a chocolate shortage. It's like Khadafi drawing a line in the sand back in the 80’s and 90’s!

Pathetic!

Although I have stocked up on 70% cocoa powder. Just saying.

Republican Party should propose heavily subsidized chocolate production...make a pretty good dent in the current “gender gap” advantage the Dems have.

If chocolate production should suddenly decline, I'll load up old Dollar, a couple of pack mules, and get VERY lost in the badlands of New Mexico until after the wars are over.

I don't particularly care for chocolate, but I know some gals that will be calling for nuclear weapons strikes, anywhere, if they run short.

“Climate change could shrink chocolate production”

That’s great news. Now Moochelle won’t have to worry so much about childhod obesity. Would appear chocolate will be too expensive for the breeding class to consume.

Now if we could just get Chewie to get her fat ass on a stair climber instead of doing 3 minutes of jumping jacks.

Now, please be sure to shave the hair under your arm-pits and back before your next taxpayer-funded vacation. You got’s to come correct and represent us stoopid mouthbreathers to the rest o’ duh world wid class. Know what I B sayin’? Yu got’s to keep it real.

As temperatures increase and weather trends change, the main growing regions for cocoa could shrink drastically, according to new research from the International Center for Tropical Agriculture.

I wonder whether they considered that I might be able to grow my own cocoa plants in NJ.

Solyent Green, Inc. I dunno much about them, but I'm guessing by the name that they're one of those "green" businesses getting stimulus cash.

If there is any truth to this at all, then cocoa production will spring up in other more favorable locations.
This works for all cash crops.
They will grow fine somewhere and if there is profit to be had, someone will figure it out and others will copy.
The only thing that could prevent it is more 'regulation'.

The socilaist democrats who funded this study should be prosecuted for misspending taxpayers funds. The scammers that pulled off the phoney study should be prosecuted right along with them. Enough is enough. Just another reason to vote these democrat frauds out on their idealogical rears ends in the next elections.
