10 Vacation Destinations That Global Warming Is Ruining

Sweden’s Ice hotel

Yes, people actually pay to spend the night in this hotel, where you sleep on slabs of ice in sub zero temperatures. (More importantly, do you go to the bathroom on an ice toilet? These are the things people need to know before making a reservation!) If freezing your butt off (literally) sounds like a fun way to spend your vacation, better go soon. Thanks to global warming, shorter winters mean this crazy tourist attraction either has to move further north (and it’s already 120 miles above the Arctic Circle) or shorten its season. One plus side, the vodka in the solid ice bar is still really cold.

2. Ski resorts

Skiing may be for the posh set but it’s getting a bit less glamorous due to global warming. Thanks to higher temperatures and shorter winters the skiing season is shortening dramatically in both America and Europe, with many resorts bringing in man-made snow in order to open on time. Nothing says romantic getaway like sharing a cocoa under a soft snow fall…created by a huge, noisy snow machine. Fortunately, angry young people are responding in huge numbers…by joining this Facebook group.

3. Tropical Islands

This island of 10,000 people in the Indian Ocean is the first inhabited island to disappear under water due to rising sea levels. In 1998, the first uninhabited islands (in the Pacific nation of Kiribati) were submerged, but the drowning of Lohachara is both unexpected and unprecedented. Scientist did not expect a populated island to disappear until at least 2015. Now they are moving up their timetables. Other islands around the world are expected to follow suit shortly, including many popular tourist locations. Basically, if you want to see Bermuda, get your scuba diving certification.

4. The Great Barrier Reef

Located off the north east coast of Australia, this reef is visible from space and is one of the wonders of the natural world. It is a scuba diver’s dream to swim among the thousands of different types of marine animals and witness the amazing colors of the coral. Unfortunately, the corral that makes up the reef is no longer growing as quickly due to rising ocean temperatures. Scientists think it could be completely dead within 40 years. This in turn means that all the fish and other ocean life will leave or die off. So if you want to see it get your scuba diving certification (see, that will help for this AND Bermuda) and book quickly!

5. India’s Palace Lake Hotel

This is an otherworldly and incredibly romantic vacation destination in Udaipur, India. The sight of this huge white hotel seemly floating on a large lake has attracted some of the most famous celebrities in the world, including Mick Jagger and Madonna. Despite its supernatural appearance, the Palace Lake Hotel actually sits on a small island in the middle of a very shallow lake. There are no roads leading up to it and all guests arrive by boat. Or they used to, anyway. Thanks to one of the biggest droughts in India’s history (which experts believe is due to global warming) it now surrounded by mud for much of the year.

6. The United Kingdom and Ireland

In the summer of 2007 England had some of the worst floods every recorded. “So what,” you’re thinking, “I’m not going to expect good weather if I ever visit, that country is famous for rain!” But what if those rains were replaced by snow? Siberian levels of snow. See, the UK and Ireland are actually pretty temperate considering how far north they are located. This is due to the fact that the water that surrounds the islands comes directly from the Gulf of Mexico. Without getting into lots of technicalities, the water is brought there through currents called “chimneys.” There used to be six chimneys. Now there are two. If any more collapse (for lack of a better term) Britain will be plunged into Siberian temperatures. Does England have mountains? Maybe we can kill two birds with one stone and start skiing there!

7. Glaciers

A freezing cold glacier might seem like a weird place to take a vacation, but they are amazingly popular. There are expensive hotels located on glaciers in the Swiss Alps. The most popular and expensive cruises in the world sail past Alaskan glaciers. Almost 2 million people visit Montana’s Glacier National Park every year. The singer Seal even proposed to supermodel Heidi Klum on top of a glacier in British Columbia. Basically, if you haven’t hiked a glacier, you are missing out. While each glacier reacts differently to rising temperatures (the Indian government just released a study saying their glaciers are bucking the melting trend) in general they are shrinking, moving, and breaking up.

8. Rocky Mountain National Park

The Mountain Pine Beetle is only 5mm long but it is having a destructive effect on pine forests around the world. The beetles kill pine trees by drilling holes into them and laying their eggs. When the larvas hatch they inject a “symbiotic fungus” into the tree blocking the travel of its sap which will eventually cause the tree to die. This is happening amazingly quickly across millions of acres of trees in Colorado and British Columbia. Once green forests are now full of copper colored leaves. But what is so bad about a permanent autumn? That could be really pretty! Well, the dead trees also fall over at random, causing increased risk to hikers and campers. So what does this have to do with global warming? These beetles have always been a problem but when cold snaps came regularly they would die out more often, remaining only a minor nuisance. Now rising temperatures mean there are very few deadly freezing nights and the beetles thrive.

9. African Safaris

The Sahara desert is growing at an alarming rate, encroaching on towns and villages and displacing thousands of people and animals. Despite the precautions taken by a group of 28 African nations, scientists expect this trend to continue. The sand and heat will expand into previously lush grasslands, the prime place for safaris. The habitats for many of the world’s most amazing animals like lions, giraffes, and elephants will shrink and effect their populations. Right now it appears that some years the desert expands more than others, and considering the size of Africa this shouldn’t be a problem in your lifetime. But encourage your grandchildren to go while they are still young!

10. The Amazon

Visiting the Amazon was always a trip for those more brave individuals willing to risk death by anaconda, death by jaguar, death by poison frog, Black Caiman, Mosquito, electric eel, animals that haven’t even been discovered yet, and most likely a plant or two. Besides all that it is a very pretty, exotic place to visit. But only if you leave now. In 2005 and 2006 the Amazon suffered the worst drought in over 100 years. At the time scientist said the forest in its present state could only survive three years in a row of drought before starting to die off. While the rains returned in 2007, more severe droughts are predicted in the future. The increased temperatures combine with the wide scale deforestation also increase the risk of forest fires, further endangering the remaining rainforest. And the loss of the rainforest would drastically speed up global warming, making every trip on this list that much more urgent!

Teej (तीज) is a festival celebrated by women of NepalLiterary "teej" means "third". Therefore Teej falls on the third day after the moonless night (Amavasya) and the third day after the full moon night of every month. However, the third day after the new moon or Amavasya of Shraavana (श्रावण) month is the most important Teej. As  Saawan month falls during monsoon or rainy season when the surroundings become green, the Shraavana Teej is also called Hariyali Teej (Green Teej).

Nine Interesting Facts about Global Warming 2014

>The leading cause of global warming is from water vapor, then carbon dioxide emissions, nitrous oxides, and chlorofluorocarbons (used in household appliances like air conditioning).

>Chlorofluorocarbons are expected to be eliminated and put out of use by 2030 to help slow down global warming.

>The biggest business sectors that are contributing to global warming are the following: Industry, Transportation, Residential, Commercial, Agriculture.

>Methane is the second biggest cause of greenhouse warming. Gas from cows is a big contributor to global warming.

>A big enough volcano eruption could cool the earth for one or two years because sulfuric acid from the explosion would combine with water vapor to form a “shield” that would reflect some sunlight away from earth. Such an eruption would be quite catastrophic, though.

>The coloration of aerosols (miniscule particles in the air) generally changes their relationship with the sun. Lightly colored aerosols reflect light back away from earth (as a white t-shirt) while darker aerosols generally absorb heat (as a hot asphalt road when it is sunny).

>Generally, wispy clouds, such as cirrus clouds, trap light and thus warm the atmosphere whilst thick clouds generally reflect sunlight.

>Ice/snow cover cools the earth by reflecting sunlight.

>Without water vapor’s effect on the atmosphere, the earth would be at below freezing temperatures

101 ways to prevent global warming.

Nowadays, you can’t help but encounter the occasional story on CNN regarding the unusually hot summers, mild winters, and melting glaciers in the Antarctic. Global warming is becoming an increasingly scary problem, as all living creatures and the environment are feeling the effects of overall higher temperatures on a worldwide scale. As scientists rush to come up with solutions to this very real and threatening issue, many promote a wide-range of prevention methods that could make the difference in either doubling global warming pollution by 2050 or cutting it in half.

How to Prevent Global Warming
To put a serious dent in the global warming problem, there are endless preventive measures to consider that involves individual, group, community, family, state, and country wide efforts. Some global warming prevention tips are as simple as changing a few habits within the household to more permanent measures, such as passing laws that directly decreases the issue. Below you will find 101 ways to become an active part of reversing the threatening trend of global warming:

1) Drive Less:

When you decrease the times you take the car out for a spin, you not only reduce the consumption of gas, but also reduce the amount of carbon dioxide that reaches the air.

2) Tree Planting:

Planting just one tree has the power to absorb one ton of carbon dioxide over its life span.

Global Warming hits 10 countries worst

Bangladesh has been the most affected country by extreme weather conditions between 1990 and 2008. And globally, in the last 18 years, extreme weather conditions have killed 600,000 people and cost a loss of $1.7 trillion, according to Germanwatch's Global Climate Risk Index 2010.

India is ranked 7th worst-hit country in the Climate Risk Index. None of the developed countries figure in the ten most affected countries' list. Among the first 20, there are only four developed countries: Italy, Portugal, Spain and the United States.

Poorer developing countries are often hit much harder. These results underscore the vulnerability of poor countries to climatic risks, despite the fact that the absolute monetary damages are much higher in richer countries. Myanmar, Yemen and Vietnam were most severely affected in the year 2008.

The Climate Risk Index ranks nations that have been worst affected by climate change and are most vulnerable to global warming on the basis of a CRI score. The lower the score on the index, the higher the risk to that country.

Here is a lit of top 10 countries worst hit by climate risks from 1990 to 2008.

1. Bangladesh

In all, 654 events were registered worldwide in 2008, which caused around 93,700 deaths and economic losses of more than $123 billion. Only around a third had been insured, primarily in developed countries.

The fact that no further peak catastrophe has happened in Bangladesh, like in 1991 when 140,000 people died, is partial proof that it is possible to better prepare for climate risks and prevent larger-scale disasters.

Climate Risk Index (CRI) score: 8.0
Annual death toll due to extreme climate: 8,241
Total losses: $2,198 million (purchasing power parity)
Losses per unit of Gross Domestic Product (GDP): 1.81%

2. Myanmar

In Myanmar, more than 95 per cent of the damages and fatalities occurred in 2008 because of cyclone Nargis. Cyclone Nargis killed as many as 100,000 people. One million people were rendered homeless. Many towns and villages were been washed away.

Climate Risk Index (CRI) score: 8.25
Annual death toll due to extreme climate: 4,522
Total losses: $707 million
Losses per unit of Gross Domestic Product (GDP): 2.55%

3. Honduras
Honduras has been hit by severe tropical storms and hurricanes over the years. Hurricane Mitch, which hit the country in 1998 changed the landscape of Honduras. In 2008, abut 200,000 people were affected by severe flooding caused by heavy rains, and 20,000 people have been forced to flee their homes.

Climate Risk Index (CRI) score: 12.00
Annual death toll due to extreme climate: 340
Total losses: $660 million
Losses per unit of Gross Domestic Product (GDP): 3.37%

4. Vietnam
Over the last decade, the frequency and severity of droughts and floods have intensified, increasing their impact on living conditions. Many people have been affected by cyclones and hailstorms.

Climate Risk Index (CRI) score: 18.83
Annual death toll due to extreme climate: 466
Total losses: $1,525 million
Losses per unit of Gross Domestic Product (GDP): 1.31%

5. Nicaragua

Nicaragua has been often hit by earthquakes, hurricanes, floods and volcano eruptions.

Climate Risk Index (CRI) score: 21
Annual death toll due to extreme climate: 164
Total losses: $211million
Losses per unit of Gross Domestic Product (GDP): 2.03%

6. Haiti

Four storms -- Fay, Gustav, Hanna, and Ike -- devastated this poverty-struck nation. About 800,000 people were affected in 2008. Haiti's poverty, weak infrastructure, vulnerable environment and fiscal problems worsen the impact of a natural disaster.

Climate Risk Index (CRI) score: 22.83
Annual death toll due to extreme climate: 335
Total losses: $95 million
Losses per unit of Gross Domestic Product (GDP): 1.08%

7. India
Natural disasters have caused extensive damage to India over the years. Droughts, flash floods, cyclones, avalanches, landslides brought on by torrential rains, and snowstorms pose the greatest threats.

Floods are the most common natural disaster in India.China, India, Bangladesh and the Philippines belong to those countries that are most often hit by extremes which, of course, is partially due to their large size and/or specific exposure to extreme weather events, the study states.

8. Dominican Republic

The hurricane season in the Caribbeans frequently coincides with heavy rains, which leads to flash floods and landslides. Earthquakes are a potential threat and tremors are felt occasionally.

Climate Risk Index (CRI) score: 27.58
Annual death toll due to extreme climate: 222
Total losses: $191 million
Losses per unit of Gross Domestic Product (GDP): 0.45

9. The Philippines
A disaster-prone country, the Philippines is recurrently hit by natural disasters: typhoons, earthquakes. The Philippines faces on average 20 typhoons each year.

Climate Risk Index (CRI) score: 27.67
Annual death toll due to extreme climate: 799
Total losses: $544 million
Losses per unit of Gross Domestic Product (GDP): 0.30%

10. China
China is one of the countries most affected by natural disasters. It had 6 of the world's top 10 deadliest natural disasters, which include floods, droughts, ecological disasters, forest and grassland fires.

China had been hit badly hit by Typhoon Hagupit in 2008. About 70,000 people were killed and 18,000 people were reported missing after a 7.9-magnitude earthquake struck Sichuan, China in 2008.
Climate Risk Index (CRI) score: 28.58
Annual death toll due to extreme climate: 2,023
Total losses: $25,961 million
Losses per unit of Gross Domestic Product (GDP): 0.78%
