A World Without Chocolate?

I haven’t had the chance to see Wall-E yet (I’m writing this post on July 10; it doesn’t open in the UK until July 14), but I have been reading rave reviews from critics and facebook friends. From what I understand Wall-E the robot lives on a desolate future earth. Thanks to global warming and environmental degredation, everything on earth is dead, save for a cockroach and a single sprout.

I’m assuming the world Wall-E inhabits also has no cacao trees. According to this CNN article, a world without cacao may be closer than you think.
