100 Places to Go Before They Disappear, Hardback
4.5 out of 5 (6 ratings)

Description

What would our world look like if the planet's average temperature were to rise by only a few degrees?

Cities including Venice, Bangkok, London, Chicago, and New York would experience severe flooding.

The tea fields of Sri Lanka and the vineyards of France would suffer under heat and drought.

Beijing and Timbuktu would be transformed into deserts, and the Great Barrier Reef's coral colonies would die.

The entire nation of Tuvalu would sink into the Pacific Ocean as water levels rise.

As plants and animals vital to local ecosystems continue to perish due to climate change, the face of our planet is already being transformed. 100 Places to Go Before They Disappear features locations on all seven continents that are in the greatest danger of disappearing within our lifetime.

With an essay by Desmond Tutu, this stunning book will inspire travellers and environmentalists to help save the gorgeous places that might soon be only a memory.

On its own, the photography in this book is astounding, but couple these amazing images with a discussion on the impact of climate change, and a photographic masterpiece is suddenly an intriguing and very effective piece of environmental propaganda. Very well done.

Brillant idea for a book and everyone should read it. We stand to lose some amazing places if global warming really kicks in on us, much to our shame.

I want to visit each and every one of these places, but most especially Antarctica.
