Donald Trump is one of the “famous” people to reject the existence of global warming.
The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.

In the East, it could be the COLDEST New Year’s Eve on record. Perhaps we could use a little bit of that good old Global Warming that our Country, but not other countries, was going to pay TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS to protect against. Bundle up!

Unfortunately for him, global warming is real and it is happening fast. Hundreds of wildlife habitats and famous tourist attractions are being and will be destroyed.
Worried that you may not get to see some attractions in your life?SingaporeGo has compiled a list of major attractions you must take a look and is relatively easy to access:
As the lowest-lying country on Earth, this beautiful island nation faces the threat of being completely submerged. Scientists have predicted that the Maldives will be completely engulfed by water within the next 100 years. Even the government has purchased land in other countries as an insurance measure for citizens who face displacement. Talk about next level flooding.
Unfortunately, Maldives is currently undergoing some political unrest and is not safe for tourist now.
Known as the City of Love or The Floating City, Vernice is separated by canals and linked by bridges. Renowned for their architecture and artwork, Vernice is a unique place where no one will regret going.
However, like any low-lying attractions, Vernice is also threatened by the risk of flooding. Once the sea-level rises due to the melting of ice-caps, Vernice will be reduced to nothing more than just an underwater monument…like The Lost City of Atlantis
The Great Barrier Reef, Australia
The world’s largest coral reef provides a spectacular view for snorkelling. The reef contains an abundance of marine life and comprises of over 3000 individual reef systems and coral cays and literally hundreds of picturesque tropical islands with some of the worlds most beautiful sun-soaked, golden beaches.
Unfortunately, coral reefs are very sensitive to temperature changes of the sea water. The idea of coral bleaching caused by acid pollution does not provide a positive outlook too. The reefs are predicted to completely die out by 2030, about 12 years from now…
The Taj Mahal, India
A mausoleum built by an emperor for his favourite wife, The Taj Mahal is regarded as the jewel of Muslim art in India. Speculated to be symmetrical, studies later showed that it was not. But due to the beauty of the structure, people often overlook the minor details.
However, the white marble facade of The Taj Mahal is turning into a dirty brownish-yellow due to air pollution. And the particles in the air are slowing corroding the marble facade of The Taj Mahal, making it dangerous for future tourist to visit.
Of course, there are places like the Dead Sea in Jordan, The Alps in Europe and also Alaska which will be badly affected by global warming. However, will Singaporeans be willing to go there?
