5 places to visit before Trump’s policies destroy us all
Climate change, nuclear war, rising sea levels, pollution- the Trump Administration isn’t doing anything to stop it, so here’s a list of places to visit at home and abroad before they disappear forever.
The Trump Administration has not been shy with their aggressive stance on dismantling certain institutions, agreements and policies.
It’s only a matter of time before we lose some of the world’s most beautiful locations. Whether it will be due to the unobstructed destruction of forests to drill for oil, or excessive pollution by big businesses, or defunding organizations like the National Park Service- all we can say for certain is that the future of some of these locations may be questionable.
So pick one or all of them, and make this summer a summer to remember the way the world once was.
An island nation off the east coast of India made up of thousands of islands, is at risk of completely disappearing in as little as 7 years. Many islands would disappear completely with a sea level change of just twelve inches.
MONTEVERDE CLOUD FOREST, COSTA RICA
The cloud forest is one of Costa Rica’s treasures. The beautiful forest has been suffering in recent years due to longer dry spells and warmer weather. Although a few degrees temperature may not feel like much to us, it is a matter of life and death to this forest and the creatures who live there.
GLACIER NATIONAL PARK, MONTANA
Located in the northern part of Montana, by the Canadian border, has seen a rapid increase in glacier melt, warmer weather, and less snow and water. Trout populations are dwindling, and glaciers are receding.
KEY WEST, FLORIDA
Similar to Seychelles, Key West is part of an island chain off the coast of Florida. Due to rising sea levels and increases in tropical storm intensity, this desirable and sough-after locale may be wiped off the map forever.
The rainforests of the world are disappearing so rapidly they may be completely gone within less than 100 years. Both the Amazon Rainforest in South America as well as the rainforests of the Congo basin in Africa are both suffering due to climate change and deforestation.
