An effect of climate change: Less beer
Rising global temperatures affect not only our safety but what we eat and drink as well.In recent years, scientists have uncovered a link between climate change and our consumption of popular items like wine and coffee.
Now, a coming study from the University of East Anglia has found a link between extreme weather and how much beer we drink. According to the researchers, whose findings will appear in Nature Plants, these extreme weather conditions could spur a 16 percent decline in global beer consumption.
That’s equivalent to 29 billion litres, or the amount of beer consumed annually in the US.
