I have noticed that the climate changes seem to be shifting. My friends don't agree, maybe I am stupid. But it seems like summer lasts until like october now, and then it becomes autumn, then it becomes properly winter in January, and then spring starts in May or something??
You aren't stupid man!http://www.unep-wcmc.org/climate/impacts.htm
Changes in seasons are already being noticed in many temperate regions. Birdsong is being reported earlier and spring flowers are emerging when it was once winter. In agricultural landscapes changes in the length of growing seasons may improve productivity in mid-latitudes and increase the potential for arable crops at high latitudes. Negative impacts may include increased ranges of insect pests and diseases, and failure of crops in some regions from drought or flooding. http://blue.atmos.colostate.edu/courses/at786.shtml
Coastal communities dealing with beach erosion could face rising sea levels, which accelerate the process and magnify the damage caused by storms, according to scientists. Fishermen and farmers could struggle with shifting seasons and new diseases. Rising temperatures are also seen as a threat to Maine's winter tourism industries such as skiing and snowmobiling, and the maple-syrup industry.
