Climate change is affecting agave crops, tequila

Wednesday is National Margarita Day and this year, it deserves special attention because the popular cocktail is being threatened by climate change.

The alcohol used in margaritas is generally tequila, and tequila comes from the agave plant.

Agave is drought-tolerant and can thrive in hot weather with little to no water. However, the crops are not tolerating the recent major weather whiplash from extreme drought to deadly storm deluges.

Climate change is also putting a strain on the agave plant’s vital pollinator: the bat.

Warming temperatures have become a growing concern for the Mexican long-nosed bat, a key species for authentic tequila.

It’s always some sort of prognostication of doom with these people. There’s almost never any good news in a warming world in which Mankind has move forward faster than ever in our history.

    Only a climate activist could make the claim that better growing conditions would be worse for things that grow specifically in those conditions.

    I don’t drink anyway, so it’s no skin off my nose if tequila goes away. Heck, I think that would be a good thing!

      STFU. Take your lying mouth somewhere else.

      Just kidding. Sobriety is a good thing. But when the economy crashes, alcohol will remain a staple trade good. Add to that a nearly infinite shelf life and dual use as an antiseptic, and there is plenty of reasons to keep some in your pantry.
