An itch for global warming

One of the reasons I have enjoyed tromping about the woods of northern Maine is that I have not encountered these guys. My guess is that's because they can't survive the winters there. Some folks wonder what's so bad about warmer temperatures; I don't see a benefit to the spread of poison ivy to this area.

wasn't there a study which projected that not only would poison ivy thrive (due to warming), but would also increase in its potency? Yecch, giant fronds of PI covering the Northern forests. Seems more appropo that it would thrive in DC.

Anyhoo, nice blog - like the humor, came here from Mike's (the MAD).
