The chips are down in the uk, literally. According to “Recipe for Disaster” from London’s left-wing Climate Coalition, 2018’s hot and dry weather “cut more than one inch off the size of the average chip.” (For those of you in Rio Linda, fries are known as “chips” in the uk; potato chips are called “crisps.”) The report’s author, who clearly has a chip on his shoulder, warns that “British-grown potatoes, vegetables, and fruit are at risk” as “growers struggle to cope with extreme and unpredictable weather.” Because farmers have never before in history had to cope with heat or drought, apparently.
The Climate Coalition’s bargaining chip? Guilt. They want every Brit subject to chip in to chip away at global warming by cutting their carbon emissions. Otherwise, Great Britain might as well cash in their chips and admit that uk spuds are duds and their taters are tots. I say, let the chips fall where they may.
