Summary "Low-lying island nations are least responsible for global warming, but they are already suffering its impacts severely and disproportionately. According to the International Panel on Climate Change, island nations are responsible for 0.03% of global emissions. A weave of essays, maps, poems and illustrations, Sea Change presents the impacts of and solutions to sea level rise. An essay, drawing on interviews, scientific reports, academic scholarship and archival research, shares their histories, present-day challenges and efforts toward livable futures. A map shows the inundation zones. Poems breathe life into the analysis"-- Provided by publisher.
