Bloomberg Businessweek's Climate Change Cover Will Make You Think (PHOTO)

If this Bloomberg Businessweek cover from Thursday doesn't make you think about the looming consequences of global climate change, we don't know what will.

The cover, entitled "Drowning Kiribati," features the Pacific island nation of Kiribati, which in just a matter of years could be completely submerged as rising saltwaters continue to endanger the land and freshwater supply.

Businessweek sends us this grim reminder that even if we can't feel the immediate effects of climate change on the United States just yet, they're getting closer.
