Yes, coffee beans may disappear by the end of this century if global temperatures continue to rise. Coffee beans, mostly that of arabica beans face a daunting future due to the increase of temperature. Arabica beans which are primarily grown in Ethiopia, Uganda and Kenya depend on “conditions that are not too warm, not too cold, not too wet, and not too dry” usnews. In these three countries and elsewhere, arabica beans thrive and flourish due to the suitable climate and temperature. However, with the rise in temperature, shifts in rainfall and harvesting patterns are negatively affecting crop yields huffingtonpost.
If humans continue on the path of negligence of burning fossil fuel and increasing the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, our daily consumption of coffee may come to an end. If we continue on this route, suitable temperatures may vanish and the coffee beans which consumers love the most, arabica, will cease to be able to be cultivated. In order to avoid this calamity, humans must live more sustainably and emit a smaller ecological footprint. Ways to do so are by walking instead of driving and going one day without meat every week. By walking, less fossil fuel will be consumed thus decreasing the emission of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Lastly, by abstaining for meat one day, potential CO2 and energy will not be consumed due to the meat not being taken, thus requiring less production of meat.
