- Eye Opening
In terms of climate change, the low-lying Pacific island nation of Kiribati is a veritable canary in a coal mine. It is already sinking and may even drown if sea levels continue to rise. In this emotive interview with TED’s Chris Anderson, President Anote Tong outlines the urgency of the threat facing the I-Kiribati and the planet. getAbstract recommends Tong’s global call for help to anyone who leaves a carbon footprint – and that’s everyone.
