Global Warming Causes Flowers To Lose Smell

Flowers losing scent due to climate change

A rose may stop smelling like a rose.

This is the concern of environmentalists as flowers are losing their scent due to climate change and air pollution. And their fragrance may be lost forever.
Science and Technology Professor Emeritus at Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, Dr Abdul Latif Mohamad, said "The aroma producing chemical compounds in flowers dry up faster now compared with before."
The only way out, he said, was to genetically modify the flowers so that the effects would not be permanent and the future generation would not be robbed of nature's beauty.

Another one for the list, excuse me as rub myself with patchouli oil and put on the garlands and start strumming "where have all the flowers gone"....

Surely that should be Pachauri oil?

I don't think even John Brignell has thought of this one. I will send it to him.

@JohnRS - Love it!
