Dumbest Story of the Day: Chipotle May Remove Guacamole From Menu Due to So-Called Global Warming

Fans of Chipotle may soon have to say goodbye to their beloved guacamole, the company said in its latest annual report.

The Mexican fast food chain announced in recent Securities and Exchange Commission filings it could temporarily suspend sales of guacamole and some salsas due to an increase in food costs.

Those increases are being caused by global warming, the Denver-based chain said.

“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,” Chipotle officials said.

Avocados and other items used to make Chipotle’s guacamole are the ingredients on the chopping block.

    At one time 80% of the avocados sold in the US were grown in and around north San Diego County. Restrictions on water have had a large impact on farmer’s in that area and I imagine that this year they are even worse.

    It’s much easier and more PC to say global warming than to say government regulations and inefficiencies have made foreseeable events like low rainfall in California much worse for farmers.
