Terribleness to infinity!!!

This is serious! And I don’t care what side of the Global Warming wall you’ve been leaning against — it’s time to get active!

Because it’s not just about melting polar ice caps, rising sea levels or increased incidents of tornadoes, hurricanes or forest fires anymore.

NO! It’s much, Much, MUCH worse!

Climate change is putting one of the most treasured treats known to man squarely in harm’s way!

That’s right — French wine is in DANGER!!!!!!!!

The terroir — the specific setting in which the grapes are grown and which gives a wine its unique flavour — is in jeopardy!


“France has the biggest diversity of terroirs in the world and this unique cultural heritage is threatened today,” said Pascal Husting, the head of Greenpeace in France.


We all know that climate change means our shit is getting hotter and, while hot summers can help enhance a vintage, experts say the higher temperatures have also ruined the character associated with some wine regions.


Studies have confirmed that warmer weather has altered the wine-making calendar, with grapes ripening earlier than ever before.


“France will always have wine.”

ALWA … oh …WHEW!

“But if the temperatures go up too much, one day there will no longer be any pinot noir in Burgundy,” Husting forecast.

No Pinot?!?
Quelle Horreur!
