The book was about the effect of global warming that can make some places disappear.
Global warming makes the earth hotter and hotter and sea level rises up because of ice melting at the North Pole and South Pole.
In Zahara de la Sierra, Andalusia, Spain, they get less and less rain and the place becomes drier and slowly turning into a desert; like bad drought in Kenya were killing plants and animals.
I think that it is a very good book for all of us to read, so that we can do our parts to stop the global warming and heal the world.
It will very sad to see all the beautiful places disappear.
I wish I can have a copy of ‘100 Places to Go Before They Disappear’ 🙂
