Time to pay attention because something seriously bad is coming.

For many of us, it’s hard to imagine life without coffee, but in just a few decades, it’s expected that rising temperatures will mean half of the world’s coffee farming land will no longer be suitable for plantation.

The alarming findings are part of a report published by The Climate Institute, who also predict that wild coffee varieties such as Arabica could be extinct within the next 70 years unless climate change is tackled.

Growing levels of fungi and pests won’t help either, and the report suggests that as a result of these factors, half the world’s coffee farming land won’t be able to product coffee by 2050.

This could cause certain coffee varieties to be entirely extinct by 2080.

Coffee will become more expensive too, as it becomes more and more difficult to produce.

And even if you’re not a fan of coffee, this should still concern you. The coffee industry is huge. If it’s wiped out, hundreds of thousands of people won’t have work.
