Report from Tuvalu, a Country Sinking Below the Waves

Last modified June 15, 2010 13:51

Tuvalu -- a small country in the South Pacific Ocean known worldwide for images in the media of waves washing away at the roots of palm trees on its beaches -- is now regarded among Japanese people as a tragedy of an island nation sinking into the sea and synonymous with being a victim of global warming. On the other hand, people, particularly the skeptics of global warming, claim that "Tuvalu is not sinking, but even if it is sinking, it is not because of global warming."
