Foreign Minister In Suit And Tie Gives A Speech While Knee-Deep In Water
9A simple plea
The minister was not demanding something outrageous. He had a simple plea, help him save his island nation that is slowly being eaten away by the sea. The young may emigrate but the old and loyal will stay until the floods wash the island away. According to him, the world may lose the Maldives by the end of the century.
10This is a death sentence
According to the minister, this trend of global warming is a death sentence for islands like his. The people are poor and have nowhere to go. Many have lived there for generations and now call it home and will not move to a new place. Regardless if we do not stop global warming many island nations will be lost to the sea.
11What can we do to help?
Global warming is something that needs the entire planet’s help to stop. We need to regulate the emission of gases and control the heat generated by our wrongdoings. This heat is what is melting the ice at the poles and what is resulting in the rise in sea levels. This in time will cause major tsunamis across the globe causing mass destruction.
12Are people doing anything about this?
Yes, but their efforts are too little compared to the negative effects of the major companies. People and companies across the globe are using greener methods to cut pollution levels and save the planet but they need help and people need more awareness of issues like global warming.
