Global climate change is not only about polar bears and far-off places: we are experiencing it here in the North Country, too. The evidence comes from a wide range of sources including weather data, ice-out contests, and nature diaries, and the changes are already being noticed by regular folks as well as experts. We'll discuss the nature and causes of those changes as well as what they could mean for the future of the region.
