Let me turn your perspective to a decaying planet by appealing to your self-interest. Because if the change is not set into motion right now, we will run out of places to take summer vacations in. Here's a list of some of the most spectacular locations on the map of the world, which are already showing signs of impending danger due to climate change.

Gansu, China

The Gansu Province in China is known for its dramatic and diverse landscape to nature lovers across the world. Located in a country which is currently the highest producer of greenhouse gases in the world, the region has suffered due to rampant pollution in the recent past. The historically significant region of China is still recognized as one the worst impacted regions by climate change.

The Maldives

The Maldives faces the deadliest threat from climate change, as rising sea levels means complete submersion of an entire country. The country is seen as an extreme test case for climate change and the rising temperature of the blue ocean waters and the increasing acidity is already showing the lethal impact on the coral locations. The beaches are sinking and it is suspected that the entire archipelago might be submerged within 50-100 years.

Alps, Europe

This winter sports paradise loses 3% of Alpine glacier every year. And because of their rather lower altitude, experts worry that by 2050 the Alps will lose almost all of its ice. The predicted changes also include changes in rain and snowfall patterns and rise in extreme meteorological events such as avalanches and floods in the nearby regions.

Varanasi, India

The famous ghats of this ancient city have lived through several floods. But it might be on the verge of giving up as water level increases the wooden walls supporting the structure are following up. Though engineers are working hard to fix the problem, forces of nature seem stronger than ever.

Glacier National Park, Montana

Once the place was home to over 150 glaciers, but by 2005 only 27 remained. And by 2030 all of those are expected to completely disappear thanks to increasing temperatures. The loss of glaciers will affect the entire eco-system of the area as plants and animals dependent on cold and water will soon follow extinction.

The Dead Sea, Israel

The lake with therapeutic minerals has shrunk nearly 80 ft in last 40 years and scientists believe that it might completely disappear within 50 years if neighboring countries don't stop withdrawing water from River Jordan (where the Sea gets its water from).

Venice, Italy

Venice's doom is a ticking clock. After the dangerously serious floods of 2009, every monsoon brings irreparable damage and fear to this Queen of Canals. Many engineers and ecologists have been working on ways to prevent the ancient city from rising sea levels, but the future is still bleak.

Tokyo, Japan

Japan has been experiencing temperature rising faster than any other place on Earth. Dense urbanization and several modern calamities to have happened on its land, nature too doesn't seem benevolent. Rising sea levels, temperature rising and a completely different issue of negative population looms over Japan.

Sahara Desert, Africa

It's not just the water that may drown the world. Sahara desert, already world's largest, is growing 0.5 miles every month. The possibility of it swallowing entire North Africa and changing the continent's climate is no longer the stuff of fantasy.

Antarctica

All the issues around water-level rising are related to ice melting on the poles due to the increase in global temperature. The amount of ice lost per year is outrageous and growing with devastating speed. With this, the whole continent is in danger.

Bangkok, Thailand

Every year Bangkok experiences a rise of 0.8 degree Celsius and along with temperature fluctuations, flooding has become a present reality for the city. In last few years Bangkok's issue with climate has sped up drastically and a future with irreversible effects. So with increasing heat and climate conditions - more likely this beautiful tourist spot is in danger too!

Miami, Florida

Some low lying regions of South Florida are under the direct threat of the rising sea level. Even currently during the high spring tide, the sea rises up to the Florida Coast and the western part of Miami's coastline becomes a congested and crowded when the streets get flooded. This problem in the city is more frequent than ever and sea level is already rising at an alarming rate and the locals have started experiencing the effect already.

Honolulu, America

America's favorite vacation spot is under a severe threat of climate change. Reports suggest that the changing climate may lead to a more arid, hot and disease-ridden environment. Higher ocean acidity has led to marine migration and with the 1 to 3ft rise in the sea level, the new coastline will be a full mile inland by the year 2100.

Rhône, France

Some of the regions of the south of France are on the top of the adventures list for travelers across the world.But as the climate is changing, winemakers are moving up north to regions with a cooler climate. The fact shows how the vineyards of Rhone Valley are slowly becoming prey to the rising temperatures in the region.

Climate change doesn't seem to be creating as big a wave as it should. With eminent voices in the seat of power negating the impending threat, the problem becomes even more severe with no global vision for a solution. So for all the travel freaks, plan the trip now before the place vanishes!
