Climate Change, 10 Places That May Disappear

Climate Change

Sometimes it’s hard to fully comprehend the devastating consequences climate change will wreak on our planet until you think about what we stand to lose if global warming is left unchecked.

Fortunately, recent reports are here to help show what we stand to lose. The U.S. Department of the Interior just released a report highlighting the national parks most at risk from sea level rise and Seeker Network recently made a video exposing which country could be the first to go completely underwater due to climate change. Top Media has also put together a video to highlight 10 iconic places—from glaciers to one of the most beautiful cities in the world—that may disappear due to climate change, air pollution, deforestation and just general wanton destruction of our home, planet Earth.

The Earth’s climate has changed throughout history. Just in the last 650,000 years there have been seven cycles of glacial advance and retreat, with the abrupt end of the last ice age about 7,000 years ago marking the beginning of the modern climate era — and of human civilization. Most of these climate changes are attributed to very small variations in Earth’s orbit that change the amount of solar energy our planet receives.

Scientific evidence for warming of the climate system is unequivocal.

Scientific Consensus

Ninety-seven percent of climate scientists agree that climate-warming trends over the past century are very likely due to human activities, and most of the leading scientific organizations worldwide have issued public statements endorsing this position.Click here for a partial list of these public statements and related resources.
