    Wanna know the sentence that scares me the most in that article? This one:

    ...using CRISPR technology to modify the DNA of the cacao plants,

    Wanna know why? (Note the pre Eddie tapping intro)

    At age 91, no chocolate stands to be the LEAST of my troubles.

    You can just run a new algorithm in your consciousness-transferred-to-robot self that makes chocolate less appetizing so it's all good

    I wasn't aware that he was a scientist. And he never said we would not have any glaciers by 2014 anyway.

    I guess none of you remembers the early Star Trek episode where Scottie tells Kirk that the first successful attempt at making a replicater was on Earth in 2045 and it was specifically to make chocolate. No other function built in or needed.

    I feel much better now.

    Yeah if non scientist Gore misunderstood one scientific study that is a totally logical reason to mistrust -- all scientists?! Huh?

    If you bothered to consult with reliable sources of information, you'd learn that we're well on our way there. Sure, they haven't all vanished yet, but a lot of it is beyond the point of no return.

    I don't think that's going to be a problem for a significant portion of TGP.

    There's a good chance I might make it to 2050 and suspect chocolate will be dispensed with a prescription and by suppository. :p
