5 places to see before being destroyed by climate change

CNN has an article detailing five of the must-see places that will be lost in the coming years. Their choices are:
  1. The Great Barrier Reef
  2. New Orleans, Louisiana
  3. Rocky Mountain National Park, Estes Park, Colorado
  4. Alpine Glaciers, Switzerland
  5. Amazon rain forest, Brazil
I'd argue with their choices. New Orleans is already gone. What is left is a shell of its former self. Rocky Mountain is an ok choice, but Glacier NP or the inland passage of Alaska are disappearing faster. And I'd throw in either Mt. Kenya or Kilimanjaro before the Amazon.

What would you choose? Put it in the comments.

My Liberal Identity:

You are a Social Justice Crusader, also known as a rights activist. You believe in equality, fairness, and preventing neo-Confederate conservative troglodytes from rolling back fifty years of civil rights gains.
