Log in to Reply It is both beautiful and sad for me, as, currently, there is a very real danger that changes in levels of emissions cannot save the islands from disappearing. Combining past emission levels, there will be a 3°C rise in the world’s temperature which is enough to sink the islands. … The majority of Maldives islands are less than one or two meters above sea level even now. 1 Log in to Reply Many things in the world are on the brink of disappearing and out of our control. Very sad. Log in to Reply That is really amazing…! 1 Log in to Reply Thank TAC, amazing islands, not far from the shores of Africa, unfortunately, the earth is currently undergoing a climate change of historic proportion, with sea levels rising noticeably from the melting of glaciers and icebergs, a satellite image from NASA, last week shows that that the ice on that sub-continent has decreased by 50%. If the trend continues, the Maldives will be completely submerged in 20 years. If someone wants to visit them, they should start planning soon as the Maldives is disappearing under the ocean. Thanks for commenting. 😉 1 Log in to Reply That is awful then…! It is very expensive to visit them… 1 Log in to Reply PS Why are you calling me TAC when it’s TAS? 😀 1 Log in to Reply Tas-Art-Craft (A Consonant and two vowels) but It’s no problem, I will just not use any term of reference in the future. 1 Log in to Reply It is not a problem, I was just intrigued why… 🙂 PS I hope you saw both of my replies here… 1 I am sometimes tempted to call you a Minx, in a good and friendly way, then I decide against it in case you get the wrong impression and end up saying nothing at all and that seems to be the best course of action. That looks so awesome. Log in to Reply They are divine, there was a film about this, I forget the title. While they are sinking for sure, they are not doing so as fast as Jakarta which is the capital of Indonesia and has the unenviable privilege of being the fastest sinking city in the world. Forty percent of the city currently lies below sea level, and it’s sinking at an alarming rate of 10 inches per year. Funny, how so many people are in denial about the weather changes, while not even 1 person will remain unaffected by it.
