The Flower Blooming Earlier in more than 1,000 years - Science and Technology 9

Fig 01- Magnolia blossoms, just for illustration

It is fact that average temperature increase by average of Celsius 0.8 degree worldwide in the last 200 years.

Temperature increasing significantly since industrial revolution in 1880.

In some places such as in Kyoto, Japan, temperature even increasing by Celsius 3.5 degree from 1820 AD to recently.

What effect of temperature rising on Japanese Sakura flowers?

Sakura (cherry) blossom are blooming earlier and earlier decades by decades. It is shown from notes taken by many sources.

From 812 AD to 2021 AD, written documents referred to the following peaked blooming dates of Sakura (please see Fig 02 at below):

- mid April in 812 AD and hundred years afterward.

- shifted to early April around 1800s

- shifted to March 26 in 2021

In addition to temperature, other factors such as rainfall is considered to lead the shift of Sakura blooming.

We may have questions why? And then, how about with other plants, especially agriculture important plants?

As you know that Carbon dioxide (CO2) responsible to temperature increasing, the effect leads to:

- early Spring

- delayed the Fall season

Plants absorbed CO2 more, together with increasing of temperature cause plants to have longer period of growing.

Moreover, we may have “shortage” in agriculture productions. At least there are 5 important crops face supply problems with climate changes.

Here they are (Dan Charles, 2018. Published by NPR, October 25, 2018):

- Almond

- Wheat

- Peaches

- Coffee

- Corn.

Do you feel climate changes have occurred in your places?

  8. The erosion here is the biggest indicator of climate change.

  9. The planet is a tapestry that cannot be disconnected from itself. As the magnolia blossoms go, so goes all of agriculture and, indeed, the world.

  10. The weather here is erratic right now and that is a good indication of climate change.

    Yes, I think so.

  12. Tanza, There is no doubt that we've entered a period of climate change, partially due to man's activities and partially a natural cycle. The impact will vary across the globe but wild weather swings seem certain. Stay Safe and Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  16. Ce matin de la neige ici.
    Oui je vois des changements climatiques, il y'a moins de neige et les étés sont tellement sec et chaud!
    Bonne journée

  17. Each year it seems fall is longer, to me. When we first got here in the midlands we might see snow as early as September. Now it's past Christmas before it might snow..but it might snow way into May, too. Definitely, a climate shift because the Fall time is much warmer, too.

  18. Weather is always an interesting topic. Sadly, I feel we are drier than we actually know at time. We might get the rain and the snow, but there is more wind too.

  23. Oh, global warming, wreaking havoc on humans and plants alike. Winters have certainly been more fall-like here in South Jersey. On a lighter note, I never knew that Japanese cherry blossoms are called Sakura blossoms!

  25. I live in a completely different climate zone, but spring and autumn are disappearing more and more here. They are shorter than many years ago.

  26. I live in semi-tropical central Florida and the last few summers have been incredibly hotter than before. It's not good.
