Study Reveals Longer and Overlapping Pollen Seasons Related to Seasonal Warming. CECI affiliate, Leonard Bielory, M.D., a board certified specialist in allergy and immunology with the Rutgers University Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital has been leading multiple studies as part of his federal research funding to examine the impact of “Climate Change on Allergic Airway Disease.” The study predicts that allergy seasons are likely to become longer and more intense as a result of climate change which will cause plants to produce higher quantities of pollen and at earlier points in the year.
