Oh the humanity. What will we do. This dire warning.............

"Down the road, scientists say there could be implications not just for ecology but for the economy if duller or delayed colors discourage leaf-peeping tourists."

I guess the only answer is the regulate co2 as a pollutant and force power companies rates to skyrocket when they have to refit them so we can turn around this debacle and save the economy on the backs of the leaf peepers. Yep good plan.

Oh and this important study costing millons I'm sure........

"Another part of the effort to study climate change through the lens of fall foliage is being conducted from space by the U.S. Geological Survey utilizing satellites from NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Right now, the effort is focused on Shenandoah National Park in Virginia, where scientists are attempting to understand the factors that go into the metrics to ensure proper analysis of the photos taken from above, said John W. Jones, a research geographer with the USGS outside of Washington, D.C."

I'll be holding my breath hoping they solve this mystery.

interesting. I read the linked story. Everything is so unsure. I am however, sure that means they need more federal dollars to study this very imporant issue!
