EPISODE #127

AIRED: 01-18-2019

Even the sweet sassy sense of serenity seeded from a terrific title totally teeming with tons of alliteration cannot quell the panic peeking through the pain of the latest coffee-caused confusion. Even as we find out all the benefits the bitter brown bean brings to our DNA and whatnot, we find out that we humans are at it yet again:
–According to the new research, coffee species are facing a wide range of threats, from increasing numbers of droughts to the faster spreading of fungal pathogens as global temperatures rise. The results showed that 75 wild coffee species are considered threatened with extinction; which is one of the highest recorded threat rates for a plant species. In fact, researchers report that there are several species that haven’t been seen in the wild, or in cultivation, for over 100 years. Threatened species include the popular commercial coffees arabica and robusta. “As temperatures increase and rainfall decreases – the suitable area for growing … diminishes,” study lead author Aaron Davis told Reuters. Davis, of Britain’s Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, told CNN that “considering threats from human encroachment and deforestation, some (coffee species) could be extinct in 10 to 20 years, particularly with the added influence of climate change.” Horrible, horrible humans.

We have been told to boldly go where no one has gone a long time ago before they could hear you scream. We have sifted, shmeared, sprinkled salad dressing liberally, trying hard to make this endless stream of diarrhetic pablum that IS Space Lettuce edible is some small way. At some point, the brain melts,...

Today, we discuss the NEW glaring inconsistencies with the upcoming 2024 North American Eclipse. But first, a few of their “facts”: –“The total solar eclipse on April 8, 2024, will be longer, darker, and seen by many millions more people. Over four minutes of totality will be observable from under a 100-mile wide path of...
