Climate change is killing Pacific Island Nation

  • Although, Kiribati in the central Pacific might make a good vacation spot but the region is ever creeping for its 103,000 citizens. 

    People pray for protection while its seawalls collapse and saltwater seeps through the soil. Jeffrey Goldberg of Businessweek noted that this is "perhaps the first ever mass movement of people fleeing the consequences of global warming."

    "Climate change is the ultimate gift to the West, of those who produce greenhouse gasses, to the people of Kiribati who don't," he wrote. 

    President Anote Tong said the ocean might not go back one day like it did in Hurricane Sandy. "It will stay."
