You love chocolates, don’t you?
I absolutely love them. Especially the dark variety that has 70 to 75% cocoa in it. Why?
Do you know that your favourite chocolate is significantly harmful for the environment?
Like I said, I love chocolates and, irrespective of whether they are good or bad for the environment, you won’t be able to dissuade me from eating them.
Well, just for your information, I’d like to tell you that the UK chocolate industry produces about 2.1 million tonnes of greenhouse gases a year that is equivalent to the annual emissions of the whole population of a city as large as Belfast. It also found that it takes around 1,000 litres of water to produce just one bar of chocolate.
You’re speaking to the wrong person, Button. I love chocolates and I’ll continue to eat them till my last breath leaves my body. By the way, where did you read about this?
In the Mumbai edition of the Indian Express dated April 3. So it’s not an April Fool’s joke!
