The international study, which spanned seven major mountain regions of the world, revealed that “decreasing elevation -- descending a mountainside to warmer levels...

As the planet’s temperatures rise, many popular tourist destinations sites such as Yellowstone National Park, Mt. Everest, the Galapagos Islands, the Great Barrier Reef, Venice, Italy… even the Statue of Liberty are vulnerable to these changing environmental conditions.  Recently, a report recently released by UNESCO, named 31 popular tourist destination sites that are current impacted by climate change.  As the planet realizes hotter summers that lead to more wildfires, melting glaciers and snow pack that gives rise to sea levels, or higher severity of flooding and soil erosion, UNESCO has determined that tourism has begun to decline precipitously.  The UNESCO...

An Overlooked Way to Help a Country Like Haiti

Posted by Crystal Ponti on

Haiti has long been plagued by environmental degradation making the small island state extremely vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. Unfortunately, the over-exploitation of natural resources has reduced the country’s ability to shield and protect itself from rising sea levels, loss of soil from erosion, intense weather events, flooding, and habitat loss – all the result of a warming planet. In 2008 four hurricanes struck the country within a space of thirty days, destroying more than sixty percent of agricultural crops and killing more than a thousand people. Climate change is suspected to increase the length and severity of these...
