Peak flowering occurs earlier. The usual seasons in the past. People need a new calendar.
Near the Jefferson memorial, around the lake, the Tidal Basin, the cherry blossoms peaked. Despite the relatively cool March, the national weather service of the United States announced on Monday that 70% of the Yoshino cherry blossoms are already in bloom. Plants, insects and animals first responded to the change in the usual cycle. Researchers believe that global warming has forever changed the timing of flowering of trees. While Sakura is blooming a week earlier than a hundred years ago, but after a while they will take away at the end of winter.
Probably the time of the National cherry blossom festival, which starts March 20 and lasts until April 14 would soon have to change if cherry blossoms will bloom in late February, as usual, the calendar no longer match seasonal changes. Critical to the shift of seasons was only 1.3°C. so temperature has risen over the last hundred years. Environmentalists warn that by 2030 the temperature might rise by another 0.6 degrees, and by 2050 to 2.
According to researchers at the University of Washington, the duration of the flowering cherry tree will also change. Due to changes in temperature, instead of 10 days, the cherry blossoms can bloom much smaller. These dates are critical for the trees. Time will not be sufficient to complete the formation of flowers and their pollination, which will inevitably lead to lower yields in this region of the USA.
Global changes are waiting for farmers worldwide. The displacement of the Gulf stream, which followed the North magnetic pole moves away from Greenland, would make the climate of Europe colder with rapid changes in seasonal temperatures, therefore in the coming years, breeders have to take care of the breeding of plants more resistant to frost.
