As the heat rises, output flags European scientists have measured every second of a working day as vineyard temperatures affect grape pickers As the heat rises, output flags.
Winemakers can expect good grape harvests much earlier now, thanks to climate change, but scientists say the effect may not last.
Sure, researchers could be using their brainpower to solve other medical puzzles, but preventing hangovers is a worthy cause if ever there was one.
Chocolate, wine, coffee -- these are just some of the foods we'll lose due to climate change; an American expat living in France explains why "Americans are suckers who have themselves to blame for crappy broadband"; meanwhile, a town in Alaska may become the first place in the U.S. to tax churches. These discoveries and more after the jump.
Remember when we told you chocolate as we know it would cease to exist in the next few years? There's more bad news. Now there's a dearth of wine thanks to a higher demand and a dwindling supply.

Obviously we prefer No. 2s, like this study out of Norway that says drinking wine -- especially if you're a woman -- might make you smarter.
A new study found that obese mice given massive doses of a substance found in red wine enjoyed improved health and increased longevity. Although the results are promising, a human would have to drink between 750 and 1,500 bottles of wine a day to achieve the dose of resveratrol given to the rodents.
