The effects of global cooling on the coffee cycle

From the November 2012 issue.

Evidence points to a cycle of cooling for the next 20 years, with the potential to revolutionize the current global coffee crop cycle.

When anti-globalisation activists in 1999 ravaged Starbucks coffee shops in what became known as ‘The Battle of Seattle’, a lot of the talk centered on the effects of global warming.

Former Vice President Al Gore would go on to win an Oscar for his documentary on climate change, as scientific and political debates have continued to focus on global warming.

But some scientists are now pointing out that since 2007, the world has gradually moved into a phase of global cooling. After around 30 years of warmer weather, the world is most likely set to see the effects of La Niña, a period of cooling, for the next 20 to 25 years that will replace the highly talked-about El Niño.
