"Pulling Guacamole" has the feel of a brand new euphemism.

Eating at Chipotle does result in the release of noxious gasses into the atmosphere...

Global warming is real.  It also means that Seattle will have the unbearable climate of San Francisco.  Oh, and it still won't be warm enough to completely melt the ice caps.

Another useful idiot shilling for obama. Will do and say anything for immunity from the new world order's persecution of opponents.

Doesn't this fall under the new rulings where a public company has to serve everyone?
Let's see this 1%r get his butt dragged thru the mud for selecting who he wants to serve.
 
2014-03-05 04:46:05 PM  
And they still start the title of the article so you're mislead into reading it.


At least I can still get my $3.00 2oz scoop of smashed up avocado! Whew.
 
2014-03-05 04:46:15 PM  
So, how much are you pulling down? And on what?

Pfft.  Chipotle?  I would never eat their corporate burritos.  I only eat REAL burritos made in the back of an upholstery shop by a blind woman in Tijuana.  You've probably never even heard of it.  You couldn't handle the level of authenticity at which I exist.

But the libtards must make every effort to force new regulations upon everyone..

Climate change... Did the whole "global warming" thing not pan out for you dopes?
 
2014-03-05 04:51:42 PM  
It's not like there managers wonder around the dining room asking people if their food is ok.  Just bring your own damn guacamole.  There's is bland to me anyway.

Wait, what does Games Workshops have to do with guacamole and Chipolte?  Are they suing them for avocados resemblance to Space Marines are something?

Ssssooooo the takeaway here is that submitter can't read.

Ok, good thread, everyone. Someone get the lights on the way out.

Climate change is not overblown. Its an existential problem for the human race in the next 100 years.

A few hundred years is considered inconclusive data when dealing with a rock that is 4 Billion years old

One could argue the Earth was hot, now it is cool so a few degrees is insignificant.

or

Ice Age (2002)
Ice Age: The Meltdown (2006)
Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs (2009)
Ice Age: Continental Drift (2012)
2014
Ice Age 5: (2016)

We are between ice ages.

Who the hell buys the overpriced guac? It's what, $2.50 or $3.00 extra? That's almost half the price of the burrito itself. farking highway robbery.
 
2014-03-05 04:59:14 PM  
Maybe now they have time to explain why they charge $1.75 per "phwop" of that stuff. Forget GW, overpriced guac is the real scandal here.
 
2014-03-05 04:59:16 PM  
Holy crap, I don't think I've seen a thread go full potato so quickly.
 
2014-03-05 05:00:40 PM  
Poor comma placement in headline.  10 yard penalty.
 
2014-03-05 05:04:40 PM  
"Increasing weather volatility or other long-term changes in global weather patterns, including any changes associated with global climate change, could have a significant impact on the price or availability of some of our ingredients."

So my takeaway from the article:

Chipotle said that they may have to pull some of their items, including guacamole or some of their salsas, or increase some prices due to climate change.

Then they discovered this year's avocado crops frozen concentrated orange juice futures are just fine.

So they said that they aren't going to have to pull their guac.

So I don't see what's "overblown" here. They made the statement, didn't they?

Probably more like the Southern Willamette Valley in Oregon, while the Willamette is more like NorCal.

We'll lose the Dungeness if warming waters force it north...
 
2014-03-05 05:08:37 PM  
Their guacamole is good. I'm glad they're not pulling it. I don't care if it's overpriced.
 
2014-03-05 05:08:50 PM  

wee: Please do not feed the trolls.


Why not?  We have plenty of guacamole.......

There are so many strawmen to choose from to mask my true motive, which to choose, which to choose,

I know! AGW!
 
2014-03-05 05:15:29 PM  
Tortilla, brown rice, double steak, no beans, double grilled veggies, mild and medium salsa, guacamole and a daub of sour cream.

SO GOOD.

Anyone who believes in global warming also tends to:

1. Own a TV but haven't turned it on in years
2. Ride a bike to work wearing spandex stretch trousers
3. Watch Japanese children's cartoons on a Mac
4. Appreciate the warmth of vinyl phonograph records
5. Read books at Starbucks
6. Claim to prefer girls with small breasts
7. Make snide remarks about Wal-Mart.
8. Walk past a smoker and force pretentious coughing noises
9. Take comfort in believing size doesn't matter
10. Feign disgust at the idea of eating a Big Mac

I see no hysteria.
But keep building up that strawman, submitter, it got you the greenlight.

"Global warming is a real thing"
"OMG you think the sky is falling!!!!"
"No, it's just a real thing"
"STOP THE HYSTERIA"

A few hundred years is fine. The science is good. Equating the models which are largely based on unproven assumptions which consistently overstate the effects of carbon is bad. Liberals don't understand modeling is not a hard science and is prone to errors associated with assumptions.

I want to thank subby for providing a thread where the climate change deniers can bleat their FOX News talking points while they wipe the latest Limbaugh felch from their chins. Keeps the rest of Fark clear for people with actual intelligence.

People who deny global warming aslo tend to believe the earth is 6000 years old.

You know what's misleading? This FARK headline. Chipotle never said they were pulling guacamole. And if you have the capability of reading past the LA Times's own misleading headline, you can read it for yourself.

"In the event of cost increases with respect to one or more of our raw ingredients, we may choose to temporarily suspend serving menu items, such as guacamole or one or more of our salsas, rather than paying the increased cost for the ingredients."

Jesus. Stop being stupid, people.
