This is getting really personal if this is the cause of my hay fever in early spring over the last decade. The grass pollen season is bad enough in June. This isn't trivial. If confirmed more people could have been affected by this than any other influence of rising CO2 to date.
Carbon emissions linked to Europe's hay fever rise
Common ragweed is a notorious producer of pollen likely to trigger allergic reactions.
A correlation has been found between CO2 levels and malformation of pollen. Could pollen malformation also be a factor in the rise of hayfever?
