Canadian scientists have collected stories from more than 90,000 people whose traditional ways of life rely on nature, in an effort to capture signs of climate change where weather stations are absent.In all, the researchers gathered observations covering 137 countries that were contained in more than 1,000 published studies.Among a trove of observations -- whose origins ranged from Crow tribe hunters in Montana to farmers in Iran -- the researchers found some 70 percent of those interviewed had witnessed changes in seasons, rainfall patterns and temperature.The observations, mostly collected from indigenous people, generally align with data and models developed to predict changes in the climate.
