"With the changing patterns of rainfall, extreme weather, warmer oceans and advent of diseases related to the climate, consumer goods in Australia will be experiencing effects in terms of quality, production and cost.
A total of 55 popular food items that can be seen in almost any Australian household have been listed under the consumer good that will be affected, or are already currently being affected, by the continued climate change.
Beer, wine and chocolate are among the popular items listed that could have increased prices. In addition, their taste will also change....
Chocolate, for example, will be affected due to the lower supply of dairy items such as milk as caused by climate change. According to the report, cows are being stressed due to the increased temperature, which results in lower fresh milk yields by up to a massive 40 percent.
Wine grape growing, which is the largest fruit industry in Australia, will also be affected by climate change. Among the regions with Mediterranean climate, where most of the production of grapes for win comes from, 70 percent is expected to become less suitable for growing grapes by 2050. The most affected kinds of wine are Shiraz, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon."
It's looking like it might be time to do something about climate change. Who's with me?
