Climate Change Makes Better Wine
Good news on the climate front! The doom and gloom surrounding global warming tends to offer a depressing picture of the future, but there may be a small glimmer of hope. Scientists have discovered climate change may actually be making wine taste better. They have found the conditions typically associated with high-quality wines have altered in recent years as temperatures have risen, resulting in consistently better vintages. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-3507836/Is-climate-change-making-wine-taste-BETTER-Rising-temperatures-causing-early-harvests-high-quality-vintages.html I usually laugh at these stories when they show the opposite. So I’m going to highlight 2 things. CO2 is never mentioned in the story. Yet its easy to find research showing higher CO2 increases grape yields. Their “temperature reconstruction” splices 100 years of thermometer data onto 300 years of tree ring data (which they claim tells you what the temperature and precipitation is).Thats pretty bogus “science”.
