    A spectre is haunting civilization--the spectre of a coffee shortage caused by climate change.

    As Newsmax reports: "Scientists are producing alarming findings that climate change is affecting both the quantity and quality of coffee beans."

    It seems that the Australians first noticed this in research published by The Climate Institute in Sydney. Excessive heat, heavy rainfall, and insects are ruining coffee harvests.

    Of course, this will mean that we will have to pay more for a cup of coffee soon.
