Allergy miseries reach unusually high levels

But it is not simply that more pollen is in the air. Americans are exposed to a new super pollen. Studies have indicated that plants growing in man-made CO2 and ozone pollution — the causes of global warming and climate change — release a more potent pollen, with greater amounts of allergens per pollen grain.

More potent pollen!

Global warming/Climate change is not man made and 'they' like to preach for profit:

Possible Earth Events

Earth is going through a variety of changes at this moment that actually could facilitate a geographic pole shift in the very near future. These changes include a slowing of Earth’s core and a weakening of Earth’s electro-magnetic field. Since Earth’s electro-magnetic field is responsible for the stability of our geographic North and South poles, it makes sense that a weakening of that field creates a greater potential for an external force to act upon it...

Our planet is always changing in its own fashion but man-made air pollution is changing the global climate.

You want to ignore the latter and "preach for profit" your unscientific stuff.

The hilarious point is that you possess no science to understand what you are posting. You just like to because you don't understand science. That makes you one more ignorant poster.

How about learning a little about the greenhouse effect?
