    Coming October 17th the cabinet ministers of the Maldives are all gearing up to go to one of the most powerful board meetings ever. A meeting to decide the fate of this beautiful country, a meeting that will discuss on the threat of rising coastlines, a meeting six meters below the surface? Yes you heard right, the President of Maldives has been urging ministers in his cabinet to get training for the sub-aqua session, which will be held six meters beneath the surface.

    The ministers will ratify a treaty calling on other countries to cut greenhouse emissions. This extreme measure came from the scary UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change warning; that a rise in sea levels of between 18 and 59 centimeters by 2100 would be enough to make the Maldives virtually uninhabitable.
