An Unexpected Link between Coffee and Climate Change

The bees, i.e. pollinators have a vital role in the production of the beans that pours the coffee cup at morning. Even their contribution is high enough upto 20 to 25 percent in the production of the coffee. According to Taylor Ricketts, the director of Gund Institute for Environment from the University of Vermont, these pollinators lead to increase the beans quality by improving their size more uniformly. But, recently, it is reported that the climate change may lower the supply of the coffee products.

The latest analysis discloses that the unusual climate change can affect the area of the coffee production in the America by dropping the production as around 80 percent. The global warming may lead to affect the coffee regions enormously. The leading coffee producers can find their coffee crops as drained by88% until 2050.

The in-depth study is performed in the Gund Institute for Environment from the University of Vermont, and the researchers from the university projected these unexpected numbers in the journal of the Proceedings of National Academy of Science, on Monday.

Taylor Ricketts worded on this issue as, “We’ve known for a while that climate change is going to mess with agriculture in a lot of ways. These are all individual species that happened to co-occur now. We’re going to lose a lot and not gain too much. There is a whole lot more at stake here than, is my nice espresso in New York going to get more expensive? Climate change is going to threaten this primary livelihood for millions of people in vulnerable communities all over the world.”
