Global Wine Production Is Doomed From ‘Climate Change’ Or Something

It’s scary!!!!! And Bad Weather never happened before fossil fuels

Here’s how wine and climate change go scarily hand-in-hand

Get ready to whine.

If you didn’t think this year could possibly get any worse, you’re wrong.

On top of all your existing 2016 worries, you now have to deal with the horrifying reality that global wine production has fallen by 5 percent.

As a result of extreme weather events, the International Organisation of Vine and Wine (OIV) reported that since 2015 there have been steep drops in wine production throughout the southern hemisphere.

During a recent press conference, OIV Director General Jean-Marie Aurand announced the troubling news that 2016’s wine production is among the lowest in the past 20 years.

Oh, noes!

(UK Guardian) Global wine production is expected to fall by 5% in 2016 because of “climatic events” causing steep drops in production in most of the southern hemisphere, particularly Chile and Argentina.

Wait, did it fall 5%, or expected to fall 5%? Both articles are based on exactly the same report. So, which is it? Does it really matter, though? As, no matter what, members of the Cult of Climastrology will be pimping doom and gloom.

(Fox News) Floods, drought, frost and hail cut into world wine production this year across Europe and South America, but the quality of the 2016 vintage shouldn’t unduly suffer.

Frost? So, colder temperatures? As far as the rest, weather happens. Some years are great, others, not so much. America was up 2%, while wine growers in South America were hit hard. Italy, France, and Spain saw their exports surge. There’s no mythical god of carbon pollution involved, just things that have always happened in climate.

    Teach are you at all concerned with the rate of change of the climate? dy/dx?
    2/3s of the rise in temps over the last 150 years has happened in the last 40 years. NJ lost their lobsters in the last 20.

    New Jersey has lost no such thing and there is lobster hunting every year, I know because I go. You best check your sources buddy they don’t know shit from Shinola. Go to YouTube and see the videos.

    Why should one be worried about the rate of change, John? Do you know how fast the temperature changed in other 150 year periods? No, you don’t, bcause there weren’t any thermometers before then. For all we know, historically this could be a slow rate. What was the rate of change from say, the year 1050 to 1200? You mean you don’t know?

    Is this some more made up facts that you throw out there John Attributing The death of the lobster industry to AGW rather then the fact that their is a glut of lobsters and NJ loberstermen arent fishing anymore. Sorta like Oil was at 150 dollars per bbls and dropped to 40….closing 100’s if not 1000’s of private well and causing huge cap offs until the price rises.

    In Maine the lobster supply so outweighs demand that the state’s fishermen pay to get rid of their catch.

    That’s not a joke, especially not to New Jersey lobstermen.

    My oh My…what could have happened in the last 40 years>?

    From the National Geographic:

    During the past 40 years, close to 20 percent of the Amazon rain forest has been cut down—more than in all the previous 450 years since European colonization began. The percentage could well be far higher; the figure fails to account for selective logging, which causes significant damage but is less easily observable than clear-cuts. Scientists fear that an additional 20 percent of the trees will be lost over the next two decades. If that happens, the forest’s ecology will begin to unravel.

    Intact, the Amazon produces half its own rainfall through the moisture it releases into the atmosphere. Eliminate enough of that rain through clearing, and the remaining trees dry out and die. When desiccation is worsened by global warming, severe droughts raise the specter of wildfires that could ravage the forest. Such a drought afflicted the Amazon in 2005, reducing river levels as much as 40 feet (12 meters) and stranding hundreds of communities.

    Meanwhile, because trees are wantonly burned to create open land in the frontier states of Pará, Mato Grosso, Acre, and Rondônia, Brazil has become one of the world’s largest emitters of greenhouse gases. The danger signs are undeniable.
