It really is scary how most people can only think short-term: they love the fact that it is 78 degrees in NYC in mid-March! How wonderful! Too bad it’s not always like this!
Yet they don’t see the long-term ramifications of this vis-a-vis anthropogenic climate change.
It is the old “frog in the pot” scenario. If you boil water and drop a frog into it, he will jump out immediately. However, if you put a frog in lukewarm water and gradually increase the heat, he will sit and burn to death.
We are all frogs in the pot…

Those of us who are allergic to pollen and have asthma from it, are (still)surprised at the ever earlier and earlier beginning of spring pollen season. Note: Brooklyn Botanical Garden is worried that the scheduled cherry blossom festival will be after the blossoms, as they are early. “You can’t fight the weather” says Garden official - not true, because it’s a result of climate change.
