Tuvalu: That Sinking Feeling

  • Aired: 12/05/2005
  • 16:19
  • Rating: NR
Who hasn't dreamed of one day living on a far-off island in the South Pacific? But there is trouble in paradise, especially if you live on an island nation as narrow and flat as Tuvalu, where the average elevation is a mere six feet above sea level. When you live that close to the water's edge you pay very close attention to the ocean, especially if it begins to rise.
