Climate Change Could Sting Allergy, Asthma Sufferers
...nger pollen seasons, the plant and tree life is changing along with the warmer temperatures. Demain said it's estimated that 90 percent of the Alaskan tundra
will be forested by 2100, and that the types of trees that are most common are changing, too.
The warmer temperatures are also attracting insects. ...
Global Warming Disaster Closer Than Thought, Says NASA

and snow cover.
The NASA research also reasserts the importance of the disappearing Arctic sea ice and snow, whose reflectivity has helped coo...

Lands surface change on Alaska tundra creating longer, warmer summers in Arctic
A gradual lengthening of the snow-free season in Alaska's tundra, and a corresponding northward progression of the growth of shrubs and trees, may be creating a cycle of warmer and longer summers in the Alaskan Arctic according to a new study to be published in the Sept. 22, 2005, issue of Science ...
