You may love chocolate, but you should probably start preparing yourself to say goodbye to it: Scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration have predicted that cacao plants are likely to go extinct as early as 2050 due to climate change. But there’s one glimmer hope on the horizon: Mars—the candy company which makes such chocolate treats as the Snickers and the Twix bar—has teamed up with the University of California on a new method that may help save future cacao crops.

You can count on climate change in the first sentence. We’ve switched from polar bears to chocolate bars.

Hey, why don’t the scientist create a mutant chocolate plant through genetic engineering. Maybe merge it with the “milk” gene and bingo — you have instant chocolate milk!

If this wasn’t the most blatant example of propoganda, what is?

You can literally see these guys sitting in their meeting rooms turning their gears trying to come up with new things to be harmed by ‘climate change’ in their projections! Cocoa? This has got to be satire!

Unless the whole world successfully goes communist and the statists control everything, people will find a way to keep the cocoa plants going even if not for the love of chocolate, but for the enormous financial gain that chocolate’s scarcity would offer. But even if the entire world was controlled by the most draconian and austere powers, they the political elites would themselves would still get chocolate. LOL

Their calculations must be off a little because the polar caps were supposed to be melted by now.... according to the consensus of scientists.

Their predictions mean bumpkiss.

Hey, at least these useless “scientists” predicting doom and gloom would be good for something.

FUZZY KITTENS WILL DEVELOP GAPING OOZING SORES BECAUSE OF GLOBAL WARMING

FLOWERS WILL SMELL LIKE FECES BECAUSE OF GLOBAL WARMING

And so on

The “scientist” is stupid. If temps were to rise, production would simply move to cooler climates. Move north about 1 meter per year. That should do it.
Cocoa stays. Mars bars stay. Chocolate milk stays. Stupid scientist with his head up his a$$ retires and never opens his stupid mouth ever again.
