So, the warmists are up to their idiocy, again. As I was reading about one of their latest scares, I thought, well, I haven’t done this in a while ….. this could be fun! And, it was.
We’ve been told, over, and over, and over again, that it has never been hotter than our recent years. That global warming has kicked into over-drive over the past couple of decades or so. Now, we also have this ……..
Climate change will cause geographic range shifts for pollinators and major crops, with global implications for food security and rural livelihoods. However, little is known about the potential for coupled impacts of climate change on pollinators and crops. Coffee production exemplifies this issue, because large losses in areas suitable for coffee production have been projected due to climate change and because coffee production is dependent on bee pollination. We modeled the potential distributions of coffee and coffee pollinators under current and future climates in Latin America to understand whether future coffee-suitable areas will also be suitable for pollinators. Our results suggest that coffee-suitable areas will be reduced 73–88% by 2050 across warming scenarios, a decline 46–76% greater than estimated by global assessments. Mean bee richness will decline 8–18% within future coffee-suitable areas, but all are predicted to contain at least 5 bee species, and 46–59% of future coffee-suitable areas will contain 10 or more species. In our models, coffee suitability and bee richness each increase (i.e., positive coupling) in 10–22% of future coffee-suitable areas. Diminished coffee suitability and bee richness (i.e., negative coupling), however, occur in 34–51% of other areas. Finally, in 31–33% of the future coffee distribution areas, bee richness decreases and coffee suitability increases. Assessing coupled effects of climate change on crop suitability and pollination can help target appropriate management practices, including forest conservation, shade adjustment, crop rotation, or status quo, in different regions.
Well, that’s interesting. Assuming we’ve already have years and years of “climate change” (the evil sort), we should be able to discern what dire effects this will have on our coffee production based on the very near past experience of coffee production while the evil “climate change” was happening. Let’s look …………
Imma just going to go out on a limb here, and say, I don’t believe there’s much to worry about. It seems, regardless of what’s happening to the land and the bees (they’re both fine) our coffee production is going to be okay.
Sigh, they haven’t gotten any smarter since the last time I did this stuff.
At some point, some of these dolts have to come to the realization that the earth’s plants love CO2! And, by giving them what they love, they reward us with not only their fruits, but, also some wonderfully pure oxygen!
Increased atmospheric CO2 (evidence of man’s advancement) does nothing, but, green the planet, increase crop production, and cleans the air. Any suggestion of anything else is simply sophistry and stupidity.
