Bummer: Climate Doom Will Make Thanksgiving Dinner More Difficult

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

It’s coming. In the future. They think. But, we can solve this with a tax

Climate change could soon make these staple Thanksgiving dishes more scarce

climate cowThanksgiving could soon become another victim of climate change as rising temperatures threaten the abundance and quality of the ingredients used to make traditional dishes seen year after year.

As a result, these essential food items could become increasingly scarce and more expensive, potentially forcing families to omit or make substitutions in key recipes on their Thanksgiving menus.

Produce is among the foods most affected by climate change, according to experts. As global temperatures rise and extreme weather events such as drought, heat waves and powerful storms occur more often, altering growing seasons and changing crop yield productions, according to experts.

These changes are causing harvest yields in Thanksgiving staple ingredients such as sweet potatoes and cranberries to decrease significantly, Himanshu Gupta, co-founder and CEO of ClimateAi, a climate adaptation platform for food and agricultural supply chains, told ABC News.

In some places sweet potato crops are down, in some they are up. Same with cranberries. Which is what happens Some years are great, some are so so, some are down. That’s the nature of farming. But, this is all still your fault. And, quite frankly, I don’t care, I cannot stand either of them.

There could be a time in the future where the constant demand for cranberries will not be able to be met during the Thanksgiving holiday, Gupta said.

Don’t care.

Data is showing that by 2060 Mississippi is going to see an 18% reduction in average yields of sweet potatoes and by 2070 North Carolina is going to see a 12% deduction in average yields of sweet potatoes, Gupta said.

An average Thanksgiving meal for a family of 10 rose 20% between 2021 and 2022 — from $53.31 to $64.05 — according to a report by the American Farm Bureau released last year. In 2020, the same meal cost an average of $46.90, according to the findings.

“Climate change is one of the most significant factors in driving that cost,” Gupta said.

Horseshit. The main factor is a weaponized coronavirus, a horrible response by government, and then the crummy policies of the Biden administration.
