The locals say some palm trees in Bolivia grow legs and walk to find more sunlight. Standing on stilts, Madidi’s “walking” trees, at right, appear to move as their shadyside roots wither. The palms may need strong root structures to quickly reach optimum height.

This photograph was taken on assignment for “Madidi: Will Bolivia Drown Its New National Park?” in the March 2000 National Geographic.

Earth-from-space-If we don’t pay more attention to human contributions to global warming we may need to use our legs to move inland from all coasts to avoid drowning.  Finding sunlight will be little problem as there will be too little shade too.
