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 …

>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…

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. Th…

Kathmandu one of worst polluted city in the World.

Air pollution in Kathmandu has reached critical conditions. Because of its bowl shape and being surrounded by mountains, pollutants created by exhaust fumes from vehicles and industry get trapped. People can wear masks when they are outside, but that only helps a little. Air pollution controls and programs are under way, but it will take some time for air quality to return to healthy standards. Air pollution is a problem worldwide. Some areas of the Earth are worse than others, however, and these areas are going to need serious air pollution control methods if they are going to be livable for people. One such area that is in a crisis is in Kathmandu, Nepal. Kathmandu is the capital city and largest city of Nepal. Approximately 1.5 million people live in the city that is located in the center of Nepal near the Bagmati River. This city is also known for another, more distressing reason as well.

Global Warming: Mankind's Greatest Threat

Humanity is about to face the most devastating catastrophe that mankind has encountered since the Bubonic Plague during the Middle Ages. This largest threat to humanity is global warming. Sure, some people are still debating if global warming is in progress and the long term effects of pollution in the environment, but the general consensus among most scientists and researchers is that global warming has started and is going to increase at an uncontrollable rate in the very near future.
Either our world leaders are going to recognize global warming as a real threat to humanity and address it properly, or the entire human population may become extinct.
The effects and consequences of global warming are both frightening and overwhelming. Currently, global warming is modestly increasing the average temperatures throughout the world. However, these temperature increases will continue to spiral upwards and cause massive climate changes throughout the world. For in…
