We need to go on a carbon diet. If we keep pumping out emissions
at current rates, we’re going to see some pretty wild changes over the
next century...Here are five more food and beverage staples that we
could lose to climate change, gone from the menu forever....
Yes, indeed, "The end is near."
Two monsignors of the cult who who worship at the altar of environmentalism are warning about what climate change is going to do to the global food chain. They're also predicting that the following will disappear from the face of the earth in short order if nothing is done to curb the causes of climate change:
- Seafood: "Not a great outlook for your next seafood gumbo....You might want to hurry up and order that baked salmon— who knows how long it’ll be on the menu?

- Honey: "Climate change will really sting the world’s honey supply."
- Beer: "A visit to the pub could soon be a visit to the museum."
- Cherries: "With warmer and more inconsistent weather predicted, it may be a tart future for this fruit."
One of their "values" frames an "issue we care about," namely, "climate justice." According to the duo:

increasingly real, from melting ice caps to rampant forest fires; it can
no longer be denied that manmade carbon pollution is affecting our

The Motley Monk has no dispute with those who worship at the altar of environmentalism that human beings must protect the earth and its precious resources. It's a biblical imperative. The question is: "How will the nations across the globe collaborate to ensure clean air, clean water, and good health for all people?" Ignoring science that doesn't support wild assertions and preaching fear is medieval.
Hopefully, Ben and Jerry weren't informally advising Pope Francis about the contents of his upcoming encyclical concerning the environment.
