Climate Change effects every country in the world. However, for the most part countries that already have environmental and socioeconomic issues are worst off when it comes to climate change. Many countries could fall apart if they are continuously hit with bad weather, poor crops and depletion of resources. This could often mean the end of them and will one day eliminate any opportunity to see them. As well coastal countries and island states may disappear under water with sea level rise. ...

14 Places to Visit Before Climate Change Destroys Them
11 Environmentally Friendly Travel Tips for Eco-Tourists
Environmentally friendly travel seems almost impossible. A single transatlantic flight can be as big of a carbon footprint as a year's worth of driving, and unfortunately for most, you need a return ticket! You can click the little "carbon-neutral" box and pay a small fee on your airline ticket and then sleep well at night. However, environmentally friendly travel requires so much more pre-planning than just clicking a few buttons on your reservations. It involves choosing environmentally ... Read the Post
Plastic Puzzle: Getting Rid of it!
I can't say I'm even close to getting rid of all of my one-use plastic consumption. Though I'm trying.

This is especially true because we live in a place that just introduced a "carbon tax", ... Read the Post
The Score for Climate Change 2016 in Sudden Death
2016 seemed to be the culmination of a large amount of climate change events and factors which had been silently brewing in the background, now coming to light. Between the natural disasters and climate change action (or lack thereof) it was a noteworthy year. It seemed as though every time each side of the climate change world made a point, the other would come back to tie the game. We've made some steps forward and steps back in saving the planet. There was enough climate news this year ... Read the Post
Great Barrier Reef: Scuba Diving!
"Well it's not Cozumel." Cole shrugged as he pulled himself back onto the dive boat, water pouring off his gear as I held on through the small waves below. We had just finished our first of the eight dives we would complete on the Great Barrier Reef (GBR) over the next three days on a live aboard boat, and so far he wasn't impressed. ... Read the Post
