    Spring is early calendar-wise, but for folks who tend to blame the sun for global (northern?) warming, the summer is getting longer because it’s robbing minutes from spring, not the colder seasons of autumn and winter.

    The “warm seasons of spring and summer combined are 7.573 days longer than the colder seasons” in the article doesn’t change appreciably on the human-lifetime scale. The perihelion-equinox cycle that drives the season length is more like once cycle in 21240 years.
