Maldives ElectionsPresident of the Republic of Maldives Mohamed Nasheed is taking climate change seriously and thinks you should too.

Nasheed recently took to the Huffington Post to share his ideas about our growing environmental problems and to explain that “for the Maldives, climate change is no vague or distant irritation but a clear and present danger to our survival.”

He explains that in the Maldives, a sea level rise of even a few meters could ruin most of the country. Furthermore, the warming oceans could destroy coral reefs and leave the islands unprotected from the waves.

Mohamed suggests that the world must “wean itself off coal before 2030, and immediately end the deforestation pouring carbon in the atmosphere,” or we could see mass destruction.

We hear you, brother!
