Global Warming Follies

Korea represents the globe

I love it when very localized things, like budding trees in Korea, are thought to be representative of the entire globe. This story tells of Arbor Day celebrations being held early because of “global” warming.

“The weather is warming up early and it’s better to plant early,” Lee Cheol-soo, the city’s park greenery official, said.

The city of Paju, located north of Seoul near the North Korean border, also moved up its planting event to Thursday.

Calls for moving up Arbor Day have emerged across the country due to the effects of climate change, but the day will be observed for now according to public recognition, the Korea Forest Service said. (Yonhap)
