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.
