from the September, 2019 issue of Undercurrent   Subscribe Now

Thanks to inaction by the world's governments, rising sea levels spurred by global warming mean that some islands and island chains are likely to disappear underwater within the next 80 years. These include:

Solomon Islands, a group of nearly 1,000 in the
South Pacific ...

Maldives, in the Indian Ocean ...

Palau, in the South Pacific ...

Micronesia, 607 islands located 2,500 miles
southwest of Hawaii ...

Fiji, where one village already has been relocated to
higher ground ...

Tuvalu, in the South Pacific ...

Seychelles, off the east coast of Africa ...

Kiribati, in the Central Pacific ...

Cook Islands, off New Zealand ...

French Polynesia, including Tahiti and Bora Bora ...

Marshall Islands, halfway between Hawaii and
Australia ...
