Chipotle Warns It Might Stop Serving Guacamole If Climate Change Gets Worse

I find this amusing. From ThinkProgress:

Chipotle Inc. is warning investors that extreme weather events “associated with global climate change” might eventually affect the availability of some of its ingredients. If availability is limited, prices will rise — and Chipotle isn’t sure it’s willing to pay.

“Increasing weather volatility or other long-term changes in global weather patterns, including any changes associated with global climate change, could have a significant impact on the price or availability of some of our ingredients,” the popular chain, whose Sofritas vegan tofu dish recently went national, said in its annual report released last month. “In the event of cost increases with respect to one or more of our raw ingredients we may choose to temporarily suspend serving menu items, such as guacamole or one or more of our salsas, rather than paying the increased cost for the ingredients.”

Nothing about a human response to changing climate. Like say, moving the avocado trees… Because if it gets really warm, there is plenty of room for avocado trees in Kansas and Nebraska.
