How does climate change affect Tourism? By City Tech Blogger Fareen Bacchus

Tourism for many locations is the main source of income for the population. Over the years, millions will travel to various destinations to visit. A location may be known for its wildlife, beaches and its architecture.

For example, Florida is known for their wonderful beaches and trophy fishing. Spring break brings in millions of dollars to Florida’s revenue and happens every year. Let’s say a hurricane would occur around the timing of the event. Money would be lost and many wouldn’t be happy. Florida beaches are a nice way to cool off but many are disappearing. The Florida coastline is decreasing and the sea level is rising. Florida is in danger and by the year of 2040 we may lose a piece of Miami. Florida weather is great for year round agriculture but due to the rising temperatures farming is becoming more difficult and numerous crops are taking a hit.

Another example would be Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico was once known for its beautiful beaches, nightlife and resorts. Because of the natural disasters now many don’t visit because the country is still struggling to recover. Hurricane Maria is the worst natural disaster to strike Puerto Rico as a Category 4 storm. This occurred in 2017 and five years later Puerto Rico still isn’t the same.

As you can see, climate change is real and we need to work as a whole to slow down the process to enjoy the traveling we all like.
