Climate Change: The tourist destinations that could disappear

Climate Change: The tourist destinations that could disappear if sea levels rise by 1 metre

Earlier this year, a report from researchers at The University of Copenhagen suggests that Sea levels will rise an extra 25% on top of the IPCC’s original prediction of 0.43m to 0.84m, by 2100.

Sea level rise will affect the entire global population in one way or another. Whether it’s the livelihoods of communities in low-lying floodplains, the food procurement process, or global transport networks, sea-level rise will continue to threaten millions of people worldwide.

Specifically, the world of tourism is at risk of rising sea levels. Scientists, experts, and government officials have outlined the extreme risk of flooding in some of these places and that even some of these destinations could simply disappear. The increased threat of sea-level rise also will severely impact the communities that facilitate tourism in these holidaying hotspots.

To put this into perspective, the team at Money.co.uk has created several posters reimagining how some of the world’s most popular holiday destinations could look by 2100, if sea levels continue to rise dramatically.

Science-Backed Benefits of Working Outdoors [Infographic]

Human beings are not made to be locked inside a cubicle all day. We are biologically built to move around and get in touch with the outdoors. Our bodies need to experience changes in air, temperature, and scenery to interrupt the stagnant office environment.

Most construction work, as we know, takes place outdoors. While it is hard work, studies have shown a wide range of benefits when you work among trees, fresh air, and sunlight, including increased creativity, productivity, and positivity. This explains why we often feel at peace when gazing at scenic landscapes and greenery. Companies like Google have realized this and incorporated nature into their office environments to improve their employees’ performance.

However, many jobs, including those in construction, take place at a desk. To show the benefits of bringing your desk outside, BigRentz created an infographic that covers the dangers of a desk job and the science-backed benefits of working outdoors.

Scientific Reasons why you should Drink More Water [Infographic]

Good water is the purest, most wonderful thing you can do for your body! (Well, top three at least…)

Our bodies are around 60% water in total, more so in specific parts such as the blood (90% water) and cartilage (80%). So it’s very easy to dehydrate yourself – and very harmful when you do so.

Spin it around though, and if you hit the 3-4 liters per day that your body requires, you will instantly feel better. Drinking a decent amount of water each day can help your digestion, your skin, and your anxiety. And it can help you to focus, which makes those meditation sessions even more rewarding.

The tricky thing is figuring how to get more water into your life. But it’s just about good habits. This visual guide provides eight easy ways to drink more water. Get it down, and you can start enjoying a purer, more lubricated lifestyle!
