Study finds coffee plant faces extinction due to global warming
A new study says climate change has the wild Arabica coffee plant headed for extinction.
Scientists from Royal Botanic Gardens in London ran computer models on global warming.
The scientists say that if their worst estimates come true, there would be no where on Earth suitable for wild coffee growth in 2080.
Because wild coffee insures healthy genetic diversity - it could mean extinction of even beans grown on farms.
