The world's olive oil crop was poor the last two years so naturally the media and the Gang Green are blaming Global Warming.
Wine grapes and olive trees generally grow in the same areas. So why did California have a bumper crop this year? It is a mighty selective form of climate change that ruins olive harvests but not grape harvests.
And just to be clear, it wasn't just in California; =https://www.decanter.com/wine-news/champagne-harvest-2023-a-bumper-crop-511943/][linChampagne[/link] saw a bumper crop as well. Ditto in England. And Portugal][/lin Australia had a disappointing crop, but in 2021 had [link=https://winetitles.com.au/bumper-harvest-in-2021-what-does-it-mean-for-growers/]record production. That was just two years ago. New Zealand did well in wine production this year.
So why is it climate change that has made olive production drop?
Spain, one of the world's largest producers, had a major drought (as did Italy) which spiked prices. But that hardly is a result of "climate change" as in 2020 Spain had a bumper crop. Iwould add uruguay hada bumper olive oil crop this year.
IF this were caused by a warming planet caused by carbon dioxide we would see a crash in all areas, not just in key growing districts.
The reality is key growing areas were hit by droughts - nothing the least uncommon about that. We are in an El Nino year, after all. And the El Nino was expected to hurt olive oil pruduction. See also this.El Nino is usually associated with drought conditions in the Mediterranean.
This is but another ruse to make people panic and hand over our civilization to the social engineers.
