"My first thought about global warming in North Dakota and Minnesota was, “Whoopee!” Brutally cold weather makes traveling dangerous and limits outdoor adventures. A longer summer, spring and fall could mean more time for gardening and make tree-, grass- and fruit-growing here easier.
But this view is much too narrow. Polar bears that can't find food are just one of the animals that may disappear. This extinction of some plants and other living things also will result."
