Now, researchers say those blooms are likely to expand as climate change continues and Earth becomes progressively warmer. According to HuffPost, British scientists have put together the first large-scale map of green algae across the area. Green snow algae is found where summer temperatures are above freezing, but still cold enough for there to be snow.
