10 types of food threatened by climate change
Chocolate is probably the most popular and beloved sweets in the world. Chocolate will be scarce in the future, which is possible. According to the researchers, climate change causes droughts negatively affecting cocoa production. Even every year, the world will only produce one chocolate bar in the future.
You may have to give up the habit of sipping a cup of tea to relax after a long day of fatigue. Researchers warn that the tea industry will be greatly affected by climate change. In fact, tea fields face the problem of insect infestation and bad leaf quality due to bad weather.
In addition to the excessive exploitation of human beings, or the decline of habitats, the increase in CO2 in the atmosphere is also one of the key causes. According to studies, increased levels of CO2 reduce the amount of protein in pollen - the main source of bee food. In the worst case, this problem causes the bees to decrease in quantity because there is not enough nutrition.
The number of rice plants is being threatened to reduce 20-40%. Besides, rice quality is not guaranteed. Rice will be less nutritious when the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere increases.
According to a study by the University of Melbourne, the winter becomes more and warmer and has a big impact on apple production. Apples and cherries are the fruits of the summer, but they can be replaced by plants capable of withstanding the threat of global warming.
Experts warn that warmer weather will not make enough snow in the winter and this will affect the growth of the roots and shoots of maple. Accordingly, the number of maple trees will decrease.
The area of global coffee growing is in danger of being reduced by 50% by 2050. The coffee believers will have to spend more money to buy coffee, while the taste of the coffee will be also reduced.
The wheat crop will be negatively affected by climate change. According to a study by the University of Kansas (USA), the world is in danger of losing a quarter of its output. The temperature of the earth increases by 1 degree, the output of wheat will decrease by about 6%.
Peanuts are also on the red list of foods that may be extinct because of climate change.
The hot sun will cause barley production to decrease, which means the supply of beer will decrease. The price of a beer will almost double.
