Chocolate will disappear by 2040, say experts

Oh dear lord we might run out of chocolate in the next 30 years

Now Chocolate Could Go Extinct, Great

Cacao trees can only grow about 20 degrees north and south of the equator, and need rainforest-like conditions in order to stay alive, NOAA says. If all goes well, these tiny seedlings will soon be capable of surviving - and thriving - in the dryer, warmer climate that is sending chills through the spines of farmers across the globe. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in the USA, cacao trees can only grow within 20 degrees north or south of the equator, where conditions are just right - fairly constant warm temperatures, high humidity, high rainfall, low winds and rich soils, conditions one would expect from rainforests.

Warmer temperatures and drier weather conditions are expected to be the root of the cacao plants' potential disappearance, according to Business Insider.

CRISPR-Cas9 works by finding pieces of DNA, snipping it out, and replacing it with altered DNA.

Georgia RB Sony Michel not satisfied with Rose Bowl win
The game was the highest-scoring Rose Bowl, one point more than USC's 52-49 victory over Penn State in the 2017 Rose Bowl. Earlier this week, OU quarterback Baker Mayfield had to sit out from several team events in California due to an illness.

African countries such as Cote d'Ivoire and Ghana, which produce more than 50% of the world's chocolate, are testimony to this problem. Yet, their most essential utilize might be in the creating scene, where a considerable lot of the plants that individuals depend on to maintain a strategic distance from starvation are undermined by the effects of environmental change, including more vermin and an absence of water.

Mars, which would obviously be majorly affected by a drop in chocolate supply, pledged $1 billion back in September to reduce its carbon footprint by more than 60 percent by 2050.

FYI, other foods at risk of not surviving climate change include coffee, apples, and potatoes.

Unsafe wind chills continue across the area
Indianapolis tied the record for the coldest New Year's Eve and was one degree off the mark for New Year's Day . Thanks to a northerly breeze, it'll feel more like it's in the teens, even going into the afternoon hours.

"We're endeavoring to bet everything here", Barry Parkin, Mars' central supportability officer, revealed to Business Insider.

Jennifer Doudna, the geneticist who invented CRISPR, is overseeing the collaborative effort with Mars, the company behind Snickers and M&M's.

She is leading a research lab at UC Berkeley that is using an emerging genetic engineering technology called CRISPR-Cas 9. Numerous efforts by graduate students there focus on using CRISPR to benefit small-holder farmers in the developing world. Good thing we still have it (for now).
