Spring is the new summer

“Spring, as measured by the appearance of the first leaves on trees, is arriving sooner than in the past as the planet continues to warm from greenhouse gases. ”

“The earlier spring arrival increases the risk to agriculture and gardening, as the premature emergence of buds and leaves gives them more of a chance to be damaged from a frost or freeze during the first part of the spring.”

“early blooms and leaves may emerge before migrating pollinators, such as bees and birds, return for the season, further stressing agriculture.”

As good as this my sound for those who like warm weather, it is not particularly positive to the ecosystem that is affected by early warming. Now that trends in warming are starting to escalate with no signs of slowing down, we could be headed towards extinction of many things in our ecosystem that keeps the planet alive.
