Kiribati: a drowning paradise in the South Pacific | DW Documentary
Climate change and rising sea levels mean the island nation of Kiribati in the South Pacific is at risk of disappearing into the sea. But the island’s inhabitants aren’t giving up. They are doing what they can to save their island from inundation. Can COP23 help make a difference? UN estimates indicate that Kiribati could disappear in just 30 or 40 years. That’s because the average elevation is less than two meters above sea level. And some of the knock-on effects of climate change have made the situation more difficult. Kiribati can hardly be surpassed in terms of charm and natural beauty. There are 33 atolls and one reef island – spread out over an area of 3.5 million square kilometers. All have white, sandy beaches and blue lagoons. Kiribati is the world’s largest state that consists exclusively of atolls. A local resident named Kaboua points to the empty, barren land around him and says, "There used to be a large village here with 70 families." But these days, this land is only accessible at low tide. At high tide, it's all under water. Kaboua says that sea levels are rising all the time, and swallowing up the land. That’s why many people here build walls made of stone and driftwood, or sand or rubbish. But these barriers won't stand up to the increasing number of storm surges. Others are trying to protect against coastal erosion by planting mangrove shrubs or small trees. But another local resident, Vasiti Tebamare, remains optimistic. She works for KiriCAN, an environmental organization. Vasiti says: "The industrialized countries -- the United States, China, and Europe -- use fossil fuels for their own ends. But what about us?" Kiribati's government has even bought land on an island in Fiji, so it can evacuate its people in an emergency. But Vasiti and most of the other residents don't want to leave. _______ Exciting, powerful and informative – DW Documentary is always close to current affairs and international events.

Kiribati - A Climate Change Reality
#COP21 @UNDP undo.org/cop21 Boobu Tioram, a resident of the Pacific island of Kirabati, took time out from reinforcing a seawall in front of his newly built house to speak with UNDP about what climate change has meant to his way of life. I have moved three times, every three years I have moved, he said, standing on the beach a few metres from his home. Tioram gestured toward a point about 20 metres into the sea, and explained that his first house once stood on a spot now covered in swelling ocean waves. Each time he has moved farther inland, and each time the sea has followed. Im not sure how long Ill be [in this house], Tioram continued. That depends on how strong my seawall here can withstand high tide waves. UNDP believes that it is the developing world that stands to lose the most, and which is already losing out, as the effects of climate change edge toward the catastrophic. As climate negotiations open in Copenhagen, worlds away from this tiny Pacific nation consisting of 33 low lying atolls, it is important to keep in mind that for the people of Kirabati, and other poor island and coastal nations, funds for adaptation and not only prevention must top the international to-do list. Carbon trading will be of no special consequence to us, so there has got to be some very special provisions for the victims, said Kirabati President Anote Tong. Not the potential victims, but the victims, because we are the victims, so there has to be some very deep soul searching. Kirabati is no more than four metres high at its highest point, and 100 percent of the population lives within one kilometre of the coast, making this nation one of the most vulnerable to the effects of global warming. Its future is uncertain, including the question of whether it even has a future anymore. The scientific research shows that by 2100 its almost certain that well have more than a metre of sea level rise, said Karen Bernard, a UNDP programme specialist in natural disaster reduction and transition. On a flat island like Kirabati that mount of sea level rise comes very far inland. Its a very serious situation, Bernard continued. For that reason, the Government is looking for options for relocating the population.

Rising Seas Are Swallowing This North American Island | National Geographic
Lennox Island is a small but culturally rich coastal community in Prince Edward Island, Canada, that is seeing the negative impact of climate change and sea-level rise. Home to Mi'kmaq (pronounced MIG-maw) First Nations people, the island faces flooding and land erosion that threaten both homes and the roads that connect the residents to the mainland. Also at risk are several archaeological sites that hold vital artifacts from the Mi'kmaq's aboriginal ancestors. The longtime residents of Lennox Island are doing their best to mitigate the effects of climate change but fear that eventually they'll lose their houses to the rising waters.

Global sea level rise: climate change already submerged 5 islands in Solomon archipelago - TomoNews
ISABEL, SOLOMON ISLANDS — A new study led by University of Queensland researchers says that changes in global climate and the subsequent sea level rise has already led to the loss of multiple Pacific islands. The team of Australian scientists, after sifting through decades worth of historical insight from locals as well as time series aerial and satellite imagery, say that Isabel, one of the main islands of the Solomon archipelago, has already lost five of its reef islands. These islands were once densely vegetated but weren't populated, reported the Washington Post. However, another six islands on Isabel have declined in area by more than 20 percent between 1947 and 2014. Meanwhile, residents of the island of Nuatambu have been forced to relocate to the nearby main island of Choiseul because of flooding. Of the dozens of homes that once stood on Nuatambu, at least 11 have already been swept away by the rising waters. One town on the Solomon Islands' Taro Island began planning to relocate all of its residents in 2014 because the sea level rise threatens to swallow the land. According to the study, while the global average rate of sea level rise has been 3.2 millimeters per year since 1993, the Solomon Islands have experienced an average rise by about 7 to 10 millimeters per year since 1994. The research team, who published their study in the journal Environmental Research Letters on Friday, discovered that the sea level rise has destroyed villages that have existed since the 1930s, and has displaced numerous communities. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Sea-level rise
Although it may not be immediately obvious when we visit the beach, sea-level rise is affecting coastlines all over the world. For low-lying countries such as the Netherlands, sea-level rise and tidal surges are a constant threat. Our oceans are rising as a consequence of climate change. As the temperature of seawater increases it expands and the ice melting from ice sheets and glaciers adds more water to the global ocean. We know this because satellites high above our heads measure the temperature of the sea surface and of our changing ice. While the global averaged trend is towards rising levels, there are many regional differences so that in some places it is rising and in other places it is falling. Satellites carrying altimeter instruments systematically measure the height of the sea surface so that sea-level rise can be closely monitored. Altimetry measurements over the last 25 years show that on average sea-level is rising about 3 mm a year and this rise is accelerating. ★ Subscribe: http://bit.ly/ESAsubscribe Check out our full video catalog: http://bit.ly/SpaceInVideos Follow ESA on Twitter: http://bit.ly/ESAonTwitter On Facebook: http://bit.ly/ESAonFacebook On Instagram: http://bit.ly/ESAonInstagram On Flickr: http://bit.ly/ESAonFlickr ESA is Europe's gateway to space.

Island residents didn't see it coming, but quick thinking saved most houses from the waves -- for now. December is normally the stormy season on three small islands in Manus Province, Papua New Guinea. But nothing in history had prepared the islanders for the unprecedented fury of the 2008 storm they called King Tide. Having engaged in community wide rescue operations with no government help, residents are bracing for more extreme weather this year -- at the very time that delegates will be meeting in Copenhagen to decide policy on climate change. If the islanders could go, they would ask: who is responsible for the rising seas and angry storms? Who's responsible for our relocation costs? The video is produced by MATUSA (Manus Tumbuna Save association), to raise awareness on how Manus Islanders in Papua New Guinea are being affected by sea level rising and climate change. The Filming is done by Ngenge Sasa, Lou Island, PNG. The film is presented in public for the first time at the National Museum of American Indian, during the symposium co-organized by Conversations with the Earth in October 2011. The project was facilitated by InsightShare as part of the conversation with the earth project. Conversations with the Earth is a collective opportunity to build a global movement for an indigenous-controlled community media network. CWE works with a growing network of indigenous groups and communities living in critical ecosystems around the world, from the Atlantic Rainforest to Central Asia, from the Philippines to the Andes, from the Arctic to Ethiopia. Through CWE, these indigenous communities are able to share their story of climate change.

Rising Sea Threatens 1,500 Indonesian Islands
1500 Indonesian islands are at risk of disappearing by the year 2050 due to rising sea levels. 1500 Indonesian islands are at risk of disappearing by the year 2050 due to rising sea levels. Some key spots, like the capital, Jakarta, could face problems much sooner. Soekarno-Hatta International, the airport that serves the city, is located only 3 miles from shore and may be under water as soon as 2030. Approximately twenty years later the city's northern areas would become riddled with lakes. Those estimates come from a Climate Change Vulnerability Index published by Maplecroft, a British risk analysis firm. The information in the report was echoed by a climate change specialist from the Asian Development Bank. He said, "This archipelago's biggest threat is rising sea levels, where 42 million people living 3km from the coast are vulnerable if estimated sea level rise reaches up to 90cm by the end of the century." He also made a point of mentioning that seawater acidity is increasing and resulting in a diminished fish supply, as they are moving further out to sea. Indonesia has already lost 24 islands off of the coasts of Aceh, Papua, Riau, and North Sumatra.

Plum Island Estuary: Studying how marshes respond to sea-level rise - Science Nation
At the Plum Island Sound estuary in northeastern Massachusetts, the marsh floods like clockwork. At high tide, you can pass over the mudflats into the grass in a boat. At low tide, the ocean waters recede, leaving behind fresh deposits of nutrient-rich food for the birds and other wildlife, including juvenile game fish such as striped bass. It's an ecosystem that is at once both hardy and fragile. The estuary is part of the Plum Island Ecosystems LTER; LTER stands for "Long Term Ecological Research." The LTER Network was created by the National Science Foundation (NSF) in 1980 to conduct research on ecological issues that can last decades and span huge geographical areas. The Plum Island Ecosystems LTER was established in 1998 and, like other LTER sites, this one is focused on the long view. The research is expected to continue for a generation or more. Biogeochemist Anne Giblin, of the Marine Biological Laboratory, is leading a team of researchers who are studying the Plum Island salt marshes to determine how this 2,000-year-old ecosystem is holding up under climate change, land use changes and sea-level rise. "The Plum Island Estuary LTER has given us some valuable insights about how marsh systems will respond to future climate and environmental changes," says David Garrison, a program director in the NSF Directorate for Geosciences. "These findings would have not been possible without the funding commitment to collect long-term observations."

''The island is sinking'', laments one woman. We see it with our own eyes. It is estimated that by 2015, the Carteret Islands will disappear under the sea.
