Chicago, Hudson Bay...what are they?

Chicago...whatever that was. Courtesy of Newsweek.

Hudson Bay? That's where we buy our Olympic mitts, right?

Newsweek has a pretty great photo feature online and in print called, 100 places to remember before they disappear.

Among the magazine's places that "could disappear or be radically changed if climatologists are right in their predictions of global warming:"
  • Chicago
  • Charlevoix Region, Quebec
  • Western Hudson Bay
  • Nunavut
  • Pauline Cove, Herschel Island, Canada
  • Siberia
  • Panama Canal
  • Paris, France
  • Amman, Jordan
  • Antarctic Peninsula
  • Great Barrier Reef
  • Perth, Australia
  • Venice
  • Copenhagen
  • Rotterdam
  • Bangkok
  • Borneo
  • Beijing
  • Thames, London, UK
  • The Battery, New York City

No Battery? What will horny sailors sing about?

On the plus side, we're safe as kittens here in Winnipeg. Nips on the 'House!

  1. I'm not going to lie, I was a little saddened to see that Winnipeg was not on that list...

    Just sayin.
