World climate change is threatening the very existence of so many beautiful and legendary places.
From the Arctic circle to Madagascar, rising temperatures, ocean levels, and shifting weather patterns may mean the end of many natural landmarks and points of interest as we have long known them.

I’m a roller coaster junkie, a weather enthusiast, a frequent traveler, and a numismatist. My love for coins began when I was 11 years old. I primarily collect and study U.S. coins produced during the 20th century. I’m a member of the American Numismatic Association (ANA) and the Numismatic Literary Guild (NLG). I’ve also been studying meteorology and watching weather patterns for years. I enjoy sharing little-known facts and fun stuff about coins, weather, travel, health, food, and living green… on a budget.
