THE BAHAMAS COULD VANISH IF URGENT ACTION IS NOT TAKEN TO REVERSE CLIMATE CHANGE
PARIS, France -- The postcards portray sand, sea and sun. The Bahamas is a coral-based archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean, comprising 700 islands and cays that range from uninhabited to resort-packed. The northernmost, Grand Bahama, and Paradise Island, home to the sprawling Atlantis resort, are among the best known. Scuba diving and snorkeling sites include the massive Andros Barrier Reef, Thunderball Grotto (of James Bond fame) and the black-coral gardens off Bimini.
