Climate change could see pubs run dry

with emphasis on the word "could"

"It will mean either there will be pubs without beer or the cost of beer will go up," Jim Salinger said.

"Most areas in Australia where malting barley is cropped are likely to experience producing declines," he said.

So maybe it might be better to see if malting barley has decreased in volume in the last years. But yes it has! From 148,000,000 tonnes in 1974 to 138,000,000 tonnes in 2005.

Surely due to global warming!

What's depressing is that commercial companies are apparently paying good money to listen to this drivel, which means eventually you and I pay for it through the price of their products (assuming you drink beer).
