Frying sober

Traditionally I have been very skeptical of global warming predictions. But a story I saw today has finally made me realize that, though the science is possibly flawed, the cost of doing nothing could prove disastrous:

If reports are to be believed, global warming has threatened the production of hop plants, which are used in breweries for making beer.

Dear God. Before, at least, I could tell myself if the world rapidly approaches meltdown, I could spend my remaining days swilling as much beer as I could put hands on. Now it looks like I'll have to do it sober.
