Coffee Collapse: VICE News

Editors Note: While I was researching for new videos / articles this jewel was found. Here is Vice News letting the US Market know that Coffee prices will be going up and you will drink a less quality coffee. It is a great video but this is PURE MSM BULLSHIT of the highest order. So when prices go up for Coffee in 2017 this will be the info that the #MSM is going to spoon feed you. Plus it has all of the great talking points, Climate Change and Over Farming. 1+1=5 Peeps.

Scientists predict that half of the world’s coffee could be gone by 2050, wiped out, in part, by a fungus known as coffee leaf rust.

“It was very upsetting because we expected to have a good harvest last year,” said Guadalupe Avendaño, a coffee farmer in Veracruz, Mexico, for more than 20 years. “But it was the worst.”

Coffee rust kills plants by depriving them of nutrients. And in 2014, the disease destroyed up to 70 percent of harvests in Mexico and Central America. It’s been a problem for coffee growers around the world for centuries, but unpredictable rainy seasons caused by climate change have intensified the spread of the fungus and affected farmers of varying means. “You used to make a living from coffee, but not anymore,” Avendaño said.
