* Machu Picchu
Too many tourists, landslides, and erosion all threaten to destroy this historic site.

With its highest point being roughly 15 feet above sea level, Tuvalu might little more than a sandbar soon.

As the lowest lying country in the world, it may be submerged by the end of the century. The government has even started buying land elsewhere.
