Arctic plants are getting taller due to climate change — which could fuel more climate change

Well, this is an unusual problem to have.

Arctic tundras might shift to carbon emitters, driving more warming

One landmark study suggests that the tundras are shifting their role as a result of climate change turning into carbon sources, with a net positive release of carbon into the atmosphere.

Global warming turns tundra to forests

Typically, in the tundras, tree growth is hindered by very low temperatures, and usually, in the tundra, vegetation comprises of dwarf shrubs, sedges and grasses, lichens, etc. However, according to a recent study, plants and shrubs which colonized the Arctic tundra are starting to turn into small trees, a process which will accelerate global warming even more, if it occurs
