You’d better eat a banana while you still can. British scientists say that the fruit may disappear by 2050.
One reason is climate (气候) change. Scientists at the University of Exeter in the UK collected data (数据) from 27 countries and regions that produce 86 percent of the world’s bananas. They found that climate change has improved growing conditions in 21 of these countries and regions. However, if temperatures keep rising, this advantage will disappear. The perfect temperature range (范围) for growing bananas is between 24 and 32 C. If temperatures get too high, they will stop growing.
