Paradise Drowned: Tuvalu â€" The Disappearing Nation

http://www.mindbites.com/lesson/10430 for full video. Tuvalu has the dubious distinction of being the world's most endangered country, a Pacific Island paradise suffering from the effects of rising sea levels caused by global-warming. Does Tuvalu have a future? Is the rest of the world powerless to help the first victims of a global affliction? In Paradise Drowned we follow a nation's plight against the sea. The IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) has released a report that that there is absolutely no doubt that the sea will rise about a metre in the next one hundred years because of global warming caused by industrial pollution. Yet many scientists are saying that this is quite wrong and totally misleading. The sea will not rise. This is the dilemma facing this tiny Pacific nation, perhaps the first country in the world to disappear off the face of it as the rest of the world watches. To go or to stay. For the elderly it's an easy choice. It's much harder for the young. "
