    Of course as Pietr has pointed out, this is not OT as the ultimate 
question is what will happen with our bulbs in the wild and in our

Society program showing the effects of the melting down of the North Pole 
and Greenland ice and the cold water moving south have the potential to stop 
the Gulf Current from reaching Europe and thus provoking an Ice Age.
There is evidence in ancient sources that the classic world was colder (for 
instance, how could they produce beer in Egypt?, changes of topography, 
etc.). Of course there were no potatoes in that period.

in cultivation as mentioned in my previous one. No doubt wild plants, 
subject to more severe stress, must have responded likewise.
