Ragweed Pollen Season Lengthens
Figure 3.4U.S. Department of Agriculture

This figure appears in chapter 3 of the The Impacts of Climate Change on Human Health in the United States: A Scientific Assessment report.
Ragweed pollen season length has increased in central North America between 1995 and 2011 by as much as 11 to 27 days in parts of the United States and Canada, in response to rising temperatures. Increases in the length of this allergenic pollen season are correlated with increases in the number of days before the first frost. The largest increases have been observed in northern cities.
