NOAA worries about impact of ‘climate change’ on Valentines Day – Federal science agency frets about how chocolate ‘is affected by climate’

Washington DC – The federal National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is officially on record this Valentines Day as worrying about the future of Valentines Day around the world. NOAA send out a tweet and posted an article on NOAA’s “” website fretting about “climate and chocolate.”

NOAA asked: “Is chocolate your favorite Valentines Day treat? See how it is affected by climate.”

According to NOAA: “Chocolate grows best in the places where it would quickly melt in your hands. Over the next several decades, those places may grow warmer, drier, and less suitable to cacao cultivation. But with planning and adaptation, cacao farmers can keep producing our favorite treat.” (Feb. 10, 2016)

NOAA continued: “Research highlighted in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Climate Change 2014: Impacts, Adaptation, and Vulnerability report indicates that, under a “business as usual” scenario, those countries will experience a 3.8°F (2.1°C) increase in temperature by 2050, and a marked reduction in suitable cultivation area.” (Climate Depot note: It appears NOAA is ignoring the current satellite data which shows global temperatures at a standstill for nearly 19 years. See: Satellites: No global warming at all for 18 years 8 months )

The federal agency went on to address “helping chocolate cope with climate change.”

NOAA explained: “One adaptation strategy could be providing cacao growers with selectively bred seeds that have superior drought resistance. Another strategy involves a traditional cacao cultivation method that takes advantage of the conditions under which cacao naturally grows.”

The news that a federal science agency was dedicated to saving Valentines Day did not go over well with climate skeptics.

Steve Milloy of wrote: “So Obama wants $4 trillion to fund the federal government to do nonsense like this?”

Climate Depot Note: “It’s hard to believe that the federal goverenment can predict the effects of “cliamte change on chocolate and save it when it can’t seem to figure out sea level rise.
