Global Warming Hits Home

Sure winter didn't arrive until late January this year and one day New York City will be submerged by rising ocean waters. Those both pale in comparison to the report I just read on an even graver consequence of global warming - the destruction of most the Earth's vineyards. Apparently, even a rise in temperatures of just 2 degrees can destroy an entire crop of sensitive grapes. Vineyards are already undergoing change and if it gets much hotter, many world-class wine regions, such as the southern France and the Napa Valley, may be either at or nearing their optimum climates for growing.
My advice is to start stocking up your wine cellars now.
