When we saw this list of so-called “Global Warming’s Winners” on ForbesTraveler.com, at first we thought, “Seriously?” And then we thought, “I sure could go for a cookie!” But after a quick snack, we reconsidered their hot-or-not travel judgments on places that stand to gain or lose from climate change, and made a few assessments of our own.

Our conclusion? Look on the bright side. Because, hey, even if the permafrost is thawing, that doesn’t mean you can’t go on a luxe Arctic cruise to see it.
