Global Warming is one swift and tricky mistress and there is really no telling exactly when her wrath will come due. What we can tell however is that the waters are rising right along with the temps in many locations, meaning there’s a lot of low laying islands out there that are likely to vanish within the next century. Alright, so a century is kind of a while, it’s not like you have to drop everything and go tomorrow (even though you totally want to), but you should go soon because even if they don’t disappear completely in the very immediate future they just might shrink enough that you can’t safely go visit anymore. There are a countless number of islands being severely impacted by climate change, but these 10 are on the top of the list for sure.

1. Paracel Islands

China and Vietnam won’t be fighting over ownership of these islands for much longer. Since the highest point is only 14 meters, it’ll be no surprise to anyone when they get swallowed up by the South China Sea.

American by chance, but Roman by choice, Sarah is currently feeding her adventurous soul with expatriatism and pizza. Her finest moments are always on the wrong bus with a backpack and an upside down map, waiting to see what the world’s got for her next, so long as she can blog about it. She likes writing more than talking, dolphins more than humans, old movies more than new, and Rome more than anything else.
