Climate change posing huge threat to coffee industry, scientists say
Scientists say climate change is posing a huge threat to the coffee industry.
According to scientists, rising temperatures are causing drought and diseases, killing off the insects that pollinate coffee plants.
A recent study from the journal "Climatic Change" shows half the land the world currently uses to produce high-quality coffee could be unproductive by 2050.
In response, coffee companies are boosting their presence in coffee-growing countries such as Costa Rica.
The companies are also working directly with small farms to help them adapt to the changing climate.
