Starbucks concerned world coffee supply is threatened by climate change | Environment | guardian.co.uk

Starbucks is warning of a threat to world coffee supply because of climate change.

In a telephone interview with the Guardian, Jim Hanna, the company's sustainability director, said its farmers were already seeing the effects of a changing climate, with severe hurricanes and more resistant bugs reducing crop yields.

I'm confused, I thought Starbucks was evil American Globalist so this is good news, or is it bad? "Correct think" is hard in the morning until the PG tips cut in.

Does anyone still believe this rubbish?

How quaint!

Mr Hanna may be the "sustainability director" of Starbucks, whatever the chuff that means, but I think it's pretty clear he knows fuckall about biology.

Warm weather doesn't make bugs more resistant to insecticides, incorrect and excessive use of pesticides does that. As far as I am aware, humanity's inability to read the instructions is not affected by climate change.
