I saw this photo report on the Maldives this morning. Maldives is the lowest country on the Earth, sitting just 3 ft above sea level. The photo essay documents the very man made problems effecting the Maldives and their potential to be the first nation on Earth to loose their country to the sea. Looking through the essay, I could see we have the exact same problems.
