March Heat Records Crush Cold Records by Over 35 To 1, Scientists Say Global Warming Loaded The Dice:

Joe Romm point out that, “Meteorologist Jason Samenow points out just how extreme the heat wave was: “More than 7,700 daily record high temperatures were set (or tied, compared to just 287 record lows), in some cases by mind blowing margins and over multiple days. In several instances in the Great Lakes and Upper Midwest region, morning lows even bested record highs and high temperatures soared above mid-summer norms.”

‘Unprecedented’ heat in US, 7,000 records set or tied:

Since March 12, more than 7,000 high temperature records have been equalled or exceeded, Cullen said, citing figures from the US National Climatic Data Center.

The date of first leafing - the day when buds burst open - has moved forward from March 20, where it was during the 30-year period from 1951 to 1980, to March 17, where it has been for the period from 1981 to 2010.

This early wake-up call for plants and animals can have disastrous health consequences, especially for children, said Dr. Aaron Bernstein of the Center for Health and the Global Environment at Harvard Medical School. Pollen counts are breaking records around the US, Bernstein said, noting that allergies cost the US economy between $6bn and $12bn annually.
