Climate Change to Eat Up All Chocolate

Chocolate could run out in the next 30 years, because the crop will be harder to grow in a warming climate, experts have warned. The cacao tree, from which we get cocoa beans to make chocolate, only thrives in humid rainforest-like conditions close to the Equator, NTnews reported. Two West African countries, Ivory Coast and Ghana, produce more than half the world’s cocoa but this region is forecast to be hit by rising temperatures and droughts.  The trees can only grow within approximately 20 degrees north and south of the Equator, and they thrive under specific conditions such as high humidity and abundant rain.  According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, those regions will not be suitable for chocolate in the next couple of decades.
