Study predicts plants will start budding three weeks sooner by end of century as climate change exerts direct effect on seasonal calendar

By 2100 plants will green up 22.3 days earlier in much of the country, with the biggest jump on spring occurring in the western US.

In the Pacific north-west the researchers expected an even shorter winter with spring kicking in up to 28.5 days earlier by the end of the century.
