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