Tuvalu: A snapshot of our future?


There's a striking piece by Maina Talia over at New Matilda on the effect of the rising King Tides in Tuvalu, which now totally inundate the small Pacific island nation.

Apart from the heart-wrenching nature of the story I couldn't help but wonder if Tuvalu's plight, and the lack of response from Western nations, offers an insight into what much world will look like in 20 years time.
