The article focuses on the impact of global warming and tourism on world heritage sites. Environmental groups are requesting governments to take actions to combat climate change, such as reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Those gases contribute to global warming. The Center for Future Studies officials recommend that countries limit the number of tourists by charging higher fees.
