Thoughts on climate change in the Arctic: I spoke at length to a visitor to our show in Toronto last month. A woman who had been to the Arctic about 14 years ago and had returned recently. She told me how shocked she had been to see the growth in vegetation. Places which had been rock covered and bare were covered with green and tiny plants were similar in size to plants we see in southern Canada.
