Lord quotes Lara Hansen, an ecologist, who said: "The north is a very useful place from which to learn" (7-8). What does the north, specifically, have to teach that other places don't? What are we learning from the north? Is "the north" a useful "geographical imaginary" for understanding and responding to climate change? Respond to your own take on this notion of the 'north' as a teacher, as developed in Lord's book.
