Business Insider: Chocolate May Be Extinct By 2050


The sweet treat could be a thing of the past by 2050, according to Business Insider, BUT WAIT! It's clickbait. I checked it out on Snopes. While climate change presents a credible threat to future cocoa production and to the economies of the countries that grow it, that actual story was lost in an effort to lure worried chocolate lovers to click on a link. The question is not whether or not chocolate will be around in 2058 (it will be around), the question is how much will it cost future generations to buy and if genetic modification can play a role in its future production.
