Professors at the Rutgers University suggest that amount of pollen that we have now may increase about 1.5 to two times by 2040. A computer modelling was done to forecast future pollen levels.
According to this model, pollen counts averaging 8,455 in 2000 is expected to 21,735 by 2040. The findings presented at the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology in Anaheim (Calif) implies that pollen production is highly likely to begin earlier and peak earlier due to global warming. However, there was no comment on whether it means more allergy misery.
