37 Places in Peril

Last night I was watching the French news on cable when they aired a segment on the receding coastline in Guiana, gobbling up beach front property all over the country... then this morning I discover this book about to be published... It's not 2100... it's happening NOW!

Travel is more than just a visit to a destination. It’s about heeding your wanderlust with heightened awareness and a new sense of urgency. Thee planet is actually filed with awe-inspiring but endangered places (from the phosphorescent bays of Puerto Rico to the Boreal forests of Finland), each of which are destined to undergo dramatic transformations in our lifetime. (From the press release)
