    Default Beer drinkers Unite!!


    Report: Climate change will threaten beer production
    By Caroline McCarthy, CNET news.com
    We all know already that climate change will affect everything from food prices to cute baby polar bears.

    But now it's really hitting home, folks. A report from a researcher at the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research in New Zealand suggests that rising temperatures may threaten beer.

    An Associated Press report details the findings from climate scientist Jim Salinger, who presented his research at the Institute of Brewing and Distilling's annual convention in Wellington, New Zealand. The grim results? Climate change may affect the production of malting barley, an ingredient crucial to the tasty beers we all know and love.

    If we aren't careful, the regions in Australia and New Zealand in which malting barley can grow could experience some tragic shrinkage. Salinger's study didn't extend beyond those two countries, but he did warn that "similar effects could be expected" across the globe.

    "It will mean either there will be pubs without beer or the cost of beer will go up," the Associated Press article quoted Salinger as saying.

    One word: Noooooooooooo!

    Really enjoyed that Shytalk..

    It is a scarry thought though : How Global warming can knock out (shrink the land )where Malt barley is produced..... It can do more damage than that!!

    Gotta really take care.. New Zealand and Australia will be like the Prohibition times.. When reaching for that Stout or Lager, THINK GREEN TOO.. This is Earth week.. What can be done?

    Lets hope some more trees will be planted to cool our planet...., and forge ahead.. NOT go backwards...CHEERS MATES..

    Nothing wrong with the beer here, i've never heard of this report so it's obviously not a headline issue here, I'm looking forward to global warming, the weather is obviously gonna improve and most of us will live a tad closer to the sea with an awesome sea view, sometimes the glass is half full not empty , and for you greenies the ocean will be a lot bigger, more room for the whales to live in so they will be a bit harder to find.....
