    Beer prices are likely to increase as a result of global warming

    Global warming is getting my attention with the news that it may drive up the price of beer.

    The price of beer is likely to rise in coming decades because climate change will hamper the production of a key grain needed for the brew — a scientist warns.

    Jim Salinger, a climate scientist at New Zealand's National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research, said climate change likely will cause a decline in the production of malting barley. Malting barley is a key ingredient of beer.

    “It will mean either there will be pubs without beer or the cost of beer will go up,” Mr. Salinger told the Institute of Brewing and Distilling convention.

    There is NO global warming. Al Gore has lost all credibility by spreading this crap.

    This will cause a quicker reaction to the "supposed" global warming that an increase in Gas Prices. There is nothing better to get people together than to threaten our alcohol intake.

    You can't bank on this prediction, since global warming is far from proven as far as I'm concerned.

    Re: Beer prices are likely to increase as a result of global warming

    The price of beer is threatened more by increased ethanol production as far as I'm concerned. With the rising cost of corn, farmers can make more money growing corn instead of hops and barley so they will switch. That will raise the price of barley and hops thus passing the costs onto the consumers.

    Re: Beer prices are likely to increase as a result of global warming

    Oh dear goodness...

    Nothing like taking a real reason for the price increase, such as increased gas prices, and trying to increase the public scare more by saying "global warming is the cause of _____"

    Increased gas prices - I'd buy. Global warming?

    If there was such a thing as global warming we wouldn't be getting the cool temps we have had for the 2nd straight spring now. They are talking about snow in the forecast still!!!

    What sucks is that we pay extra for good beer in Iowa already because of some idiot rules in place.

    It's now called Global Climate Change so now all of the political talking heads can further their agenda buy including global cooling into their scam.

    Well that's it. No more ethanol for me.
