Coca-Cola fears that climate change will cause water shortages
Climate change could cause water shortages, more natural disasters, and more outbreaks of tropical diseases, some of the world’s biggest corporations predict. Water shortages “could limit water availability for the Coca-Cola system’s bottling operations,” the beverage giant worries. Intel also has concerns. Manufacturing computers without access to water may “lead to increased operational costs” the computer company wrote in filings. And Disney predicts that hotter summers and colder winters will deter people from visiting its theme parks.
