A real hourglass sits above the heads of many wonderful places in the world: the human pollution, the natural erosion and other reasons are the things that will soon lead to the disappearance of at least six special places on the Earth.
I present you the six places that you must visit before they disappear:
One of the most spectacular cities of the world, Venice is also one of the most condemned to extinction. An imperfect combination between the settlement and the water level sink the city annually, and in the last hundred years 24 centimeters were lost by the city in depth. The specialists said that the city will be uninhabitable in 2100.
Great Wall Of China
Built 2,000 years ago, for defensive purposes, the Great Wall of China, the only human construction visible from space, is in danger. Over a third of the original length has disappeared because of the erosion caused by wind, but also because of people who, in time, have used the wall stones for their own constructions.
Dead Sea is known as the sea with the highest concentration of salt in the world, is impossible to sink or drown in it. At the same time is the most threatened in the world, in about 50 years the Dead Sea will evaporate completely. In every year, the sea level lowers with a meter.
Great Barrier Reef
The fishes colors and also the marine vegetation color from the Australian region of the Great Barrier Reef are unreal to those who see them live. The climate change and the pollution will take, until 2050, to the disappearance of this natural phenomenon, because the lack of living micro-organisms that make up corals.
More than 20% of the Earth oxygen is produced by the Amazon Forest from Brazil, it is called “Planet lung”. But between 2000 and 2005 a big area of the forest has been logged. The people try to stop this phenomenon but it is believed that in about 40 years the forest could disappear.
The Polar Bears From Hudson Bay
The most spectacular polar bears on the Earth are in Canada, in Hudson Bay, but in the past 20 years, over one quarter of the total population of these animals has decreased because of melting icecaps. Basically, the bears are more than 3 weeks on land than in water and thus they don’t hunt. The specialists said that this spectacular polar bears will disappear in 25-30 years.
You must hurry to visit these great places, because in less time you will not be able to see them live.
