If you're sniffling and sneezing a lot more lately, you're hardly alone. Climate change is making seasonal allergies worse, an expert says.
"With the combination of increased temperature and carbon dioxide, we are seeing a dramatic change, and allergy sufferers can probably feel that change," said Dr. Richard Weber, president of the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology.
"We are experiencing longer allergy seasons, earlier onset and there is just more pollen in the air," said Weber, who's also an allergist at National Jewish Health in Denver.
About 40 million Americans have seasonal allergies -- also known as hay fever -- and they will have to cope with earlier and longer allergy seasons, Weber said.
"A year ago, we saw pollen counts of certain trees that were about three times higher than what we normally would see in years past," he said in a hospital news release. "It was awful. Plants that ordinarily were pollinating in April, by the beginning of March, they were going gangbusters."

Toenail fungus too.
BS, I have bad allergies and this year my symptoms have been mild.
Changes ever year, too....but not by much. You can tweak....aka.....manipulate the results by picking certain areas to measure.
:: earlier onset and there is just more pollen in the air ::
Couldn’t that be the result of plants “growing” and using the CO2 to become healthier and more robust?
Ditto with me too.
Hmmm. Might be something to this... Since the MSM has been inundating us with these stories, my headaches have increased.. :/
Global temperatures have risen by less than one degree since the low point of the Little Ice Age. Anyone delicate enough that a temperature increase that small upsets their allergies belongs in an institution, not out in the real world, where far more terrible things happen (like the sun going behind a cloud or coming back out again, or a breeze starting or suddenly stopping, or the sun setting in the evening and then rising the next morning).
Me three. I usually get a sinus infection or two in the allergy season, and this year has been smooth sailing.
It’s rather comical with no material changes in the facts news stories just start popping up. You can always tell when an influx of cash is infused into the media machine.
Someone is borrowing against ALGORE’s 15 Trillion payday.
Or Firesign Theater’s “running sores, athletes foot, and shortness of pants.”
I think all the crap we eat from foreign countries where various chemicals are applied is what is making all our diseases worse.
Search- pollution, china and read a few articles. Tilapia fish are farm raised and few chicken dropping and ground up dead chickens for example.
Just helping Ivanka convince her dad to tax carbon.
Funny and quite the coincidence, that we don't find that, at least occasionally, some aspect of GlowBull CC makes things better. 100% of what it does makes things worse.
If it were Science, one might think that there would be a 50-50 shot at making things better or worse. Or, it would be a normal distribution of effects - some things worse, some things better, and a few much worse, and a few much better.
Everyone knows it’s the chemtrails. Sheesh
I'd worked topping corn, hoeing beans, bucking bales (both alfalfa hay and straw), making silage and all things farm related when I was a kid going to my grandparents' farm, and working for a local corn topping crew. Nothing ever bothered me.
This year, allergies came earlier for our area because of a mild winter and warmer than average (average, hmmm...) spring. But they didn't last longer than normal, just got here earlier and took about the same amount of time to run through.
The science is settled. Climate change causes all the following:
My ex wife
Summer Fall Winter Spring (this one is true)
Trump Derangement Syndrom
Frigidity (See ex wife)
Translation: “We need more money to study this phenomena.”
Is there anything GW can’t do?
