NASA of Coffee

While we are wasting our time in the United States debating whether or not the climate is changing, coffee farmers throughout the world are trying to figure out how to cope with it. The New York Times reports on the research being undertaken at the "NASA of Coffee" in Colombia, a research center dedicated to researching its potentially devastating effects on coffee.

This video accompanies a print article whose title points out why even the most disinterested coffee drinker should care: Heat Damages Colombia Coffee, Raising Prices (though climate change is not the only cause of the price spike that has been developing over the past few months). Learn more about coffee and climate change from my previous blog posts on the topic.
