Episode 579 The Future of Tuvalu

Global warming will submerge most of Tuvalu, but Ambassador Falefou is at the UN, mobilizing support for his country’s survival.

That is less expensive that removing the whole population to other countries, which may otherwise be necessary. The Tuvaluans plan to become the first “digital nation.”
