NOT THE PIE! Texas drought threatens to take away pecan pie:

First it came for the wine and bacon . Then it came for the coffee and chocolate . Now, climate change (or, to be specific, the drought in Texas that's consistent with weather patterns that climate scientists have predicted) is threatening to take away pecan pie and RUIN THANKSGIVING. According to the Southwest Farm Press, early reports say that Texas could produce 40 percent fewer pecans this year, compared to last. Nuts are expensive already, and the shortage will mean that pecans will be more expensive this year -- $10 to $12 a pound for in-shell pecans, likely higher for the shelled ones in the grocery store. (Also, Texas will have to handle the shame of dropping below Georgia in the pecan producer rankings.)
