"Even in Siberia, there is hapiness." - Anton Chekov
Rapidly melting permafrost is altering Siberia's landscape, economy and demographics. Birds and fruits never seen before are taking root, reliable generators of income including fish and game are becoming harder to get to market. The ice highways, the crucial network stitching this remote world together are thawing out earlier and freezing later, stranding trucks in muddy quagmires.
The legendary Siberian winters may become just that, legend.
