If millennials don't kill the beer industry, climate change just might.

A new study, published in Nature Plants, highlights that extreme weather conditions, such as droughts and heat waves, in conjunction with global warming, will cause "sharp declines" in barley crops, the primary component of beer.

"The world is facing many life-threatening impacts of climate change, so people having to spend a bit more to drink beer may seem trivial by comparison," said co-author Steven Davis, UCI associate professor of Earth system science, in a statement. "But there is definitely a cross-cultural appeal to beer, and not having a cool pint at the end of an increasingly common hot day just adds insult to injury."

I prefer Pils, but there's always Weizen - wheat beer.

But it's been good for wine-the hottest, extreme weather seems to produce really good wine.

Well, that does it. 2/3rds of all rednecks are now on the climate change bandwagon.

Of course if there was any truth to their climate change fertilizer, staying afloat wouldn't be a problem by now, would it? [emoji16]
