It has got to be tough to be a winger these days.
Now all good right wingers know that Global Warming is Hoax made up by blue helmeted pin heads at the UN, the scientists and the liberals to increase the size of government and control the world. Right? Right.
So what do you do when you see this report indicating that climate change may be in part responsible for increased pollen production that is plaguing large portions of the Nation.
Researchers found that not only is spring coming earlier, making for a longer allergy season, but warmer weather allows hickory and oak, two of the most allergenic tree species, to thrive almost everywhere in the
. Another factor: Some plants, such as ragweed, are actually making more pollen as the environment changes. "As trees that use the wind to pollinate undergo stress from heat or lack of water, they begin to produce more pollen to compensate," explained NWF climate scientist Amanda Staudt. Scientists have already observed this phenomenon in cities, where C02 levels are an average of 30 percent higher than in suburbs and rural areas. "Cities are where we’re seeing increased pollen production," explains Demain. US
So far this spring, pollen counts have been through the roof. You don’t have to be a fancy pants scientist or anything like that - if you have allergies you know it’s true.
So just what is the cause for increased pollen this spring? It can’t be global warming because it does not exist. Everybody knows this. So what could the reason for the pollen be? It can’t be those sneaky scientists again, because people are actually suffering from allergies from .... pollen. Maybe it could be the TREES themselves? Is it possible that they have joined the GLOBAL WARMING CONSPIRACY?
Or it could be some sort of evolutionary survival mechanism, perhaps.***
Something to think about.
