This program covers many aspects of climate change and the effects of humans on the environment: there were no allergies (now increasingly common) reported in the medical literature until the early 1870’s; the collapse of the bees; the shift of the Gulf Stream air currents; the effects on agriculture; changes with fish, insect, and plants and more.
Effects of a Mild Winter
MS. DIANE REHM
Thanks for joining us. I’m Diane Rehm. This has been the fourth warmest winter on record in the contiguous United States. In the past ten days, there have been more than 2,000 record highs across the country. Joining me in the studio to talk about the effects of the warm winter is biologist David Inouye and allergist Michael Morris. Joining us from a studio in Boulder, Colo. is Robert Henson, a meteorologist……
…. Well, Diane, it has been very warm across a large part of the country especially in the central and east. If you picture a swath running from the Northern Plains, the Midwest over to the East coast, New England, Mid-Atlantic, that’s kind of been the epicenter of the warmth.Â >>>>
