    Does climate change make development harder?

    The world is approaching a major milestone. In 2015, we will reach the target for nations to meet the Millennium Development Goals. Agreed upon at the UN Millennium Summit in 2000, these are a set of eight goals to help measure progress in developing countries around the world. Globally, while there has been substantial progress towards completing some of the goals, a report by the Secretary General of the UN comments that "progress has been uneven and, without additional efforts, several of the Millennium Development Goals are likely to be missed in many countries."

    As the climate warms, can trees move fast enough?

    It's not clear from this study why trees aren't keeping pace with temperature change. Perhaps geographical boundaries, like coastlines, are getting in the way. Perhaps the species on the move are being out-competed in the new habitats. It's even possible that tree seedlings are responding to climate change differently than adults.
