The video explains that because we’re putting more and more CO2 in the air each year, plants are soaking up more. This extends their reproductive stage, meaning that they produce way more pollen than usual. Also factor in the fact that we’re having fewer colder days and you have a perfect storm that’s guaranteed to give people with allergies a bad summer! The video does an amazing job of making a complicated scientific problem easy and simple to understand.
