Seeing places before they disappear

If you weren't depressed enough to hear that the plight of the polar bear has moved up a notch—they've been officially declared an endangered species—ProTraveller has come out with a list of 20 Cities, Islands & Countries Threatened by Global Warming. A few notables include the Great Barrier Reef (haven't been there yet), and the Galapagos (haven't made it there yet, either).

Get this, even Tokyo is threatened! It seems the waters that surround the Japanese city have been rising at five times the rate than in the rest of the world.

It made me wonder: Does news like this have any sway on how you plan your travel nowadays? And are there places you've revisited recently that you think should be on such a list?
