Hot Spots


A new report has been commissioned to assess the impact of climate change on the Northwest’s tourism industry and the findings are far from sunny. It is assumed that once the country starts warming up, tourists will be flocking to the Northwest rather than the over-heated Mediterranean but the research suggests this may not be the case. Paul Unger examines the issues raised by the report and examines how tourism in the Northwest may bring increased problems in terms of managing and maintaining the natural environment once climate change hits home.
