Mohamed Nasheed Quotes

Climate change is a real thing that is happening in the Maldives. It is not something in the futureā€¦ We are only 1.5 meters above sea level. Fossil fuel technology is obsolete; it has been around for too long.

 
Context
Less than an average of 5 feet above sea level, Maldives is the lowest country in the world. It’s highest point is less than 8 feet high. The small increase in the world sea level resulting from climate change has already affected Maldives, and an increase of only a foot would wipe out a large part of the country.
