    Default By the end of the century, summer weather could last half a year (not a good thing)

    Summer weather could grow to half a year in length by the end of this century if no mitigation efforts are done on climate change, according to a new study. In about the past 60 years, summer has increased by 17 days on average across the globe.
    "Summers are getting longer and hotter while winters shorter and warmer due to global warming," said Yuping Guan, lead author of the study.
    Sure, longer summers may sound great for a family vacation or enjoying the outdoors, but this extended season could significantly impact our health, the environment and agriculture.
    Heat waves could grow longer, mosquito-borne illnesses couldbecome more widespread, allergy season from pollen could turn more severe and the growing season of crops will be longer.

    Not to mention that the Atlantic hurricane season already has been declared to begin two weeks earlier than the traditional 1 June beginning date. Earlier, more frequent, and more severe hurricanes are not my idea of a good time.

    You seem to be right in the heavy traffic area. I wonder if the vagaries of climate change will include randomly changing the paths of some of the traditional hurricanes and tornadoes...

    Yes, we are right in the predicted pathway for the hurricanes. We shall see what this year brings us.
