Who was Vern and how did he get his own equinox?

The author explains the effects of climate change on the four seasons of the U.S. He says that the change has caused the 2008 spring season to be deducted by one day or full eight hours. He cites this reason to be the reason as well why cherry trees in Washington are blooming a month earlier than 30 years ago and woodpeckers in North Carolina are laying eggs a week sooner than 20 years ago. He also claims that one day lost from the spring season is added to the summer season.
