No.10 巧克力Chocolate

If you weren't aware, most of the cocoa in the world comes from West Africa. You know, that totally stable region of the world? Cocoa beans aren't 'fair-trade' so a lot of that Halloween candy you stuffed in your mouth actually came from child slave labor. Cocoa farmers have also learned it's not really worth their time to produce the crop that can take up to five years to grow. What costs $1 today, can cost a whole lot more in about 10 years.

No.9 红酒Wine

There has been a 1 percent rise in consumption of wine world-wide, and 5 percent fall in production. These new boutique suppliers of wine just can't keep up with the demand. We need a solution and fast, because there is nothing more annoying than a wine-o without their poison.

No.8 龙舌兰酒Tequila

Agave is a pain of a crop. Blue agave plants take up to 12 years to produce the fructose necessary to make tequila. So when disease hit the agave crop in Mexico in 2007, a lot of the farms had to be burned, putting a damper on your future tequila consumption. Many Mexican farmers have also switched over to growing corn instead as it is staggeringly cheaper. Don't despair, there is plenty of tequila stocked up, but what you pay for it will change.

No.7 氦气Helium

Say bye-bye to your fun party decor! There's a national helium reserve in Texas which is about to be sold off. Congress passed an act in 1996 to make sure this happened, and if you haven't noticed, that's next year. Helium is used in the making of LED products, MRI magnets and fiber optics, so its demand is actually pretty high. Once all the helium is sold off, good luck filling up balloons with anything other than your own puffs.

No.6 山羊奶酪Goat Cheese

Across Europe, farmers have given up on the production of goat milk because it's just not making them enough money. No goat milk, no goat cheese. This is really a bad day for wine drinkers, huh? Production also ceased in certain areas to prevent the spread of Q fever. Just another annoying little flu transmitted by farm animals.

No.5 培根肉Bacon
87732130.jpg - 你所不知道的世界上有十种东西快用光了 - 华人小孩 - HuarenKids
Okay, now things are getting serious. This is not because America has decided to put bacon on everything, it's actually from some pretty serious issues. The cost of food is rising, for many reasons including weak corn and soybean harvests. So farmers are cutting down production to prevent loss. There is also this lovely little thing called Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus. Mmmmm. This is killing piglets in 15 different states across the country.


No.4 沙丁鱼Sardines
85645193.jpg - 你所不知道的世界上有十种东西快用光了 - 华人小孩 - HuarenKids
Sardines actually need warmer water to survive, so with cooling waters around Canada, harvests are coming up with a number of ZERO. As the water temperature fluctuates, sardines may start to flourish again, but it looks like we might be without these bad boys in a few years. No love lost for many of you, though, I'm assuming.


No.3 黄金Gold
BU011177.jpg - 你所不知道的世界上有十种东西快用光了 - 华人小孩 - HuarenKids
The Wall Street Journal has reported that the world will exhaust its gold supply in 20 years. The gold boom in the 90's sent the mining world into a frenzy, and now it's just... gone.


No.2 磷Phosphorus
Red_phosphorus_as_powder.jpg - 你所不知道的世界上有十种东西快用光了 - 华人小孩 - HuarenKids
Let me go ahead and terrify you, the human race depends on phosphorus. It is a MUST-have ingredient in fertilizer, which as you know, we can't grow the amounts of food we have on Earth without it. The price of phosphate rock went up 700 percent in 2008, if that gives you any sign of the deficit struggle. With the development of bio-fuels, phosphorus began to diminish and it's something world leaders desperately need to tackle starting yesterday.


No.1 水water

Sure, you might be able to get water everywhere and anywhere, but don't be surprised if that's not the case in the future. The struggle for water is real, and it's going to get very, very ugly in the future.
