Climate Change In Ecosystems Is Happening At Varying Rates

I read a piece in the latest issue Rocky Mountain Climate Organisation news that ecosystems are moving uphill at a rate of 37 feet per decade. These same ecosystems are moving north at a rate of 10 miles per decade. This change is happening fast in terms of nature, but it seems slow to us; proving that it is hard to think of climate in decades. Another thing is this uphill and northward migration happens to ecosystems at varying rates; faster in treeless ecosystems like the arctic. This is a scary little biofact.
