Top 10 endangered sites due to Global Warming

Antarctica: the Müller ice shelf and the Larsen ice shelf are shrinking dramatically.

The Arctic ice cap: the melting of icebergs and ice caps in the Arctic is blamed on global warming and threatens the habitats of species such as polar bears.

The Maldives: rising sea levels (3½in per year) could make these 1,200 islands in the Indian Ocean uninhabitable within 100 years.

Venice: the Italian city is sinking into the Adriatic and rising sea levels could make things worse.

Alaska: American travel agents report thousands heading for the shrinking glaciers and melting permafrost.

Great Barrier Reef, Australia: it's been predicted that rising water temperatures, which are bleaching the famously vivid reefs, will kill 95 per cent of the living coral by 2050.

Kitzbuhel, Austria: the home of the world's most fearsome ski run is among low-lying Alpine ski resorts whose long-term futures are threatened by rising temperatures - on average the warmest they have been for 1,250 years.

Galapagos Islands: rising water temperatures are bleaching coral and causing the deaths of marine species.

Al Gore in the Maldives

A strange bit of news to some of you ;

Former Unites States’ Vice President and international environmental campaigner Al Gore’s Oscar-winning documentary was screened in Male last night as part of the celebrations of the US-Maldives Friendship Week.

Held in collaboration with the civil society NGO, Open Society Association, “An Inconvenient Truth” was screened at the Government-run Nasandhura Palace Hotel in Male for invitees....

At the conclusion of the screening, there was a session for question and answers but no one in the audience raised a hand; the film definitely spoke for itself.
