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.
