Allergy sufferers are having a rough time of it this spring. If you’re among them, and if you think it’s getting worse, you’re right–and climate change is at least partly to blame.
Admittedly, warming climate has far more severe consequences, such as the eventual flooding of entire coastal cities. On a personal level, though, pollen allergies make people pretty miserable. (I write this as a lifelong sufferer myself.) When springtime comes and trees burst into buds, some of us shut all the windows and huddle inside.
