Tuvalu Is About to Vanish

Tuvalu is a little island state in the Pacific… For now. Rising seas will likely swallow the island whole inside of fifty years, displacing some 10,000 people.

“We keep thinking that the time will never come. The alternative is to turn ourselves into fish and live under water,” Tuvalu Deputy Prime Tavau Teii told Reuters in the South Korean capital where he was attending a conference on the environment.

New Zealand has indicated it is willing to take in refugees when the time comes. Australia has been vague and noncommittal.
