20 Places to see before they vanish

ProTraveller has posted a list of 20 Cities, Islands & Countries Threatened By Global Warming.

The post points out that while British Columbia is hoping the temperature boost will help their wine thrive, it may very likely put other parts of the world in dire straights. While India’s Lohachara island was the first inhabited island to disappear underwater as a result of global warming, many very popular destinations may be under water or otherwise affected by global climate change in the coming decades.

The list of areas in danger includes:

  • Maldives, Indian Ocean
  • Death Valley
  • Lake Baikal
  • Galapagos Islands
  • Tokyo, Japan

Check out the other 15 regions at risk as well as projected images of some of the destruction here. Then, click here to see what you can do to help stop global climate change.
