It was an interesting overview, not spectacular.  There were a series of panels, I missed some, but the Q&A at the end showed some of the attendees were thinking only the oceans and coasts were involved.  On the panel was a woman representing Vermont's state government and Vermont is entirely landlocked.  She was asked, can that affect you inland?  And she said, Oh Yes!  We can now grow asparagus which is crazy! and we now have Lyme disease because the ticks can now survive the winter.  We are in the north, but have changed into a totally different climate zone.

None of the scientific findings made the global impact more real.

She's right about changing zones and Lyme disease, but I've been growing asparagus for 25 years with excellent results.

In the Vermont Green Mountains?  They aren't sheltered from cold north winds by the Great Lakes.  I grew up in Milwaukee and went to college in southern Minnesota - due west of home.  Getting more than 50 miles from the Lake change everything, for 4 years I never saw a tulip.  The day in late May I went home, tulips on campus were new leaves without even a bud showing yet.  8 hours later at home, our front yard tulips were budded, bloomed and gone a week or so earlier.

Well, there's no moderating lake near where I live and we (usually) get winters of -30 C temps. I would be surprised if the Green Mountains are any colder. My asparagus doesn't poke through until May but if never fails.

There may be soil issues as well as climate - but it was a very interesting and passionate response.  Chicago also has shifted climate zones.

We're getting poisonous spiders in Oxfordshire that, about 20 years ago, couldn't get north of the English Channel  :-\

But it does look as though COP 21 may reach a real agreement - hooray!   ;D

That's good to hear - makes me believe it really is as important as it seems to be.

As one of the Millennial generation, I sure hope it works!

Just the fact that 200 nations agreed unanimously to start movement in the right direction is an astonishing first step.  Now if they can ALL carry it out ...
