Kiribati (Gilbert islands) is a country comprising of several small islands called Atolls.
They are situated around the equator near the GWM
Because of their geographical altitude, and due to effect global warming, they will be the first to submerge and disappear from the world map as human habitable settlement when sea level increases.
The situation now is worse, Miss Kiribati, Taumiri Tetuai(photo above) said. If we remain silent, the bigger nations will not understand the danger of global warming. She said this while she was at Pacific islands 2009 beauty pageant.
President of Kiribati, Anote, has expressed his concerns on global warming effect several times, but it seems there were deaf ears around. We Hope Copenhagen will make a different turn over!
Kiribati aerial view now, water is almost eating the islands
Haya ndio maisha ya kawaida sasa huko Kiribati, mitaa imegeuka maji, na miti kama minazi ambayo hutegemewa sana na wananchi inakauka kwa sababu ya maji. Kama uonavyo choo/bafu hilo la mabati, limepakana na bahari ya Pacific.
