Remember the Maldives

Interesting video clip of a short interview by Laura Flanders of The Nation of Mohammed Hassan, the vice-president of the Maldives. We've blogged before about the impassioned way representatives of the Maldives have, over the years, tried to put a face on the issue human vulnerability to climate change. The Maldives is a small island state in the Indian Ocean that does not receive much notice by the Western media yet, like parts of Africa, they are currently experiencing the types of changes in the landscape expected to occur more frequently in a warming world. It's worth a listen and a good reminder that to many people around the world, this is not a strictly academic issue.
