There's big forests... and little agriculture. And they are struggling.

Not all of Mongolia is forest though; the south is part of the Gobi desert. Guess what will happen there if temperatures rise?

Nature often does not work as you'd like.
It is a huge bet to think rising temperatures will create fertile land where none is now.
Especially as we will definitely lose fertile land to desert forming and rising seas.

2011 Honda Insight + HID, LEDs, tiny PV panel, extra brake pad return springs, neutral wheel alignment, 44/42 PSI (air), PHEV light (inop), tightened wheel nut.
lifetime FE over 0.17 Gmeter or 0.1 Mmile.

Investors woes:

"In hindsight, I should have bet more on that horse"
