Some Arctic ground no longer freezing

Still Waters

Nikita Zimov was teaching students to do ecological fieldwork in northern Siberia when he stumbled on a disturbing clue that the frozen land might be thawing far faster than expected.

Zimov, like his father, Sergey Zimov, has spent years running a research station that tracks climate change in the rapidly warming Russian Far East. So when students probed the ground and took soil samples amid the mossy hummocks and larch forests near his home, 200 miles north of the Arctic Circle, Nikita Zimov suspected something wasn't right.

This was what I thought could be one of the "positives" of global warming.   Not that I am pro global warming, just trying to be optimistic. 

There should be more farm-able land.   Also, more discoveries should be made.

More arable land at the poles but less in equatorial regions. And since earth is (more or less) spherical, there is more area at the equator so less arable land overall.
