Rising temperatures fueled by global warming are causing forests of spruce trees to invade Arctic tundra faster than scientists originally thought, evicting and endangering the species that dwell there and only there, a new study concludes.

This is interesting. I was not aware that adding trees could be a problem.

I can not say I'm honestly surprised, as the temperature rises, so does
the amount of species that can inhabit an area.

Trees can be a problem, the problem to is dependant on the area.

For instance, in certain arltitudes, trees actually hurt the environment,
while at other altitudes they are one of the best things for it.


This does make me wonder though, perhaps in twenty years, we will
see Siberia start to become a vast farmable area.

Interesting that trees are now sprouting in the artic, but is a reason and is not only because of global warming.

The seeds are already in the ground meaning that they may have been there from a time when the artic was warmer.

They are just sprouting now that the temperatures are favorable for them.
