    Has the Koppen Climate Map moved over the decades?
    We keep planting corn in higher latitudes but that is because of genetics, not climate imo.
    A gif showing comparisons would be helpful. It may dictate the speed that climate refugees will have to move. My house may be two inches closer to Dfa since it was built 20 years ago.
    Plants live in the real world. Perhaps we should look there for truth.
