Venice, the 'City of Water' may nolonger be with us by 2050. The glaciers in the Austrian Alps will vanish by 2050 and 40% of the ski resorts across the entire Alps may close down. Cote d'lvoire, the largest prodecer of cacao, will no longer be able to harvest the beans by 2050. 80-90% of the world's coffee plantations are exposed to impact of climate change. The amount of coffee plantations will be halved by 2050 and wild coffee will go extinct. The production of wheat and corn will decrease up to 25% by 2050. Each 1ºC increase in temperature reduces the production of wheat by 6%.
