As well as
Tagging geographical areas we should also make tags for geographical zones:
I think especially the
tropic and polar tags are needed to denote special (for us unusual, extreme) conditions needed to consider for that particular question, like:
"How to keep my electronics from humidity in tropics?"
"Wild camping in tropics"

I think this is a good suggestion - for questions where climate matters. It shouldn't be mandatory for all questions (like the question about navigating in fog; fog is fog, no matter where you are). Extreme temperature zones definitely warrant special considerations, but not every question here needs to specify what the climate is.

I agree that these broad geographic tags can and should be used, but only when the answer applies to at least most of the zone, as I describe in
my answer here.
