Report: Climate Change Tickles Idaho Noses

November 10, 2008

Boise, ID – Hay fever season in Idaho is getting longer, according to a new article in The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology that blames longer allergy seasons in Idaho, Wyoming, and Montana on climate change.

Dr. Richard Buswell, an allergist who treats people in the region, affirms that he has seen an uptick in the number of patients.

"With the longer growing season from global warming, allergically-induced asthma seems to be becoming more predominant."

He says the rise in allergic asthma should ring new alarm bells about climate change.

"With asthma, it has more serious overtones because some people have severe enough asthma that they land in the emergency room, or the hospital."

Dr. Buswell argues that people's health should be part of the consideration as the nation tackles pollution linked to climate change.

Critics of climate change science say it's possible that human actions are not linked to what's happening, and changing weather patterns and temperatures could be part of a natural cycle.
