Indonesia planning global warming relocations

Posted by karmalily on November 2, 2008

The southeast Asian nation of Indonesia is planning mass relocation of people who will be threatened by global warming’s rising sea levels.

From Planetsave:

Experts and Government officials fear that about 2,000 islands across the country will be underwater by between 2030 and 2040 due to rising sea levels caused by global warming. Indonesia has over 17,000 islands, of which, about 6,000 are populated.

This is just the beginning folks. As global sea levels rise, as servere weather occurances increase, and as the world faces clean water and food shortages, the number of climate refugees will continually increase. Live is going to get rather difficult if we don’t do something soon.
