Watch James Hansen’s TED talk

I think it’s a nice, succinct description of the problem of climate change from one of the leaders of the field.

On a related note the nation of Kiribati is relocating to Fiji as their island nation is disappearing.

    To be fair, Kiribati is not currently picking up and moving to Fiji. They are attempting to buy land on Fiji as a contingency should sea level rise make Kiribati functionally uninhabitable.

    Neither Kiribati, or Tuvalu, or the Maldives are subject to ‘rising sea levels’ above the post-glacial mean. We know the sea levels are not rising along the Australian coastline for certain.
    Sadly, Kiribati and the others are the tiny pin-head peaks of ocean volcanoes, based on a very unstable sea floor.

    They – of course – sinking..
