Climate change to worsen allergies


If a weirder climate, rising sea levels and so on and so forth weren’t enough to motivate us to combat climate change, here is another reason to do so. As Al Gore notes on his blog :

“Watery eyes, runny noses and puffy faces will abound this year as a warm winter, human development and climate change converge to create a brutal allergy season that will likely get worse for years to come, according to experts.”

“(…)  More people are becoming susceptible to allergies over time as pollen seasons are getting longer.” (via E&E News : Climate change is expanding allergy risks )
