2 Cents: Beer and Climate Change

Central PA Live

A new study looks at one of the more obscure impacts of climate change, beer.

It found climate change will cause a beer shortage.

That’s because one of beer’s main ingredients, barley, is sensitive to extreme drought and heat.

The study found global warming will lead to substantial decreases in the barley crop, causing beer shortages and a sharp rise in prices.

One of the study’s authors says the aim of the study is not to encourage people to drink more beer today, but to show that climate change will impact your quality of life.
