Tarawa, Kiribati Islands, South Pacific Ocean. November 2014
Children escape the crowds of the capitol island to swing on the beach at sunset. The South Pacific island nation of Kiribati is being put on the map because it may be the first country to be erased from it. Due to man-made global warming, the UN predicts that Kiribati will be among the first of several low-lying island nations to vanish into the ocean by 2050 due to rising sea-levels. Residing just over the dateline, Kiribati is the first nation to see the sunrise of tomorrow; it is also the first to see what the rest of the world considers to be “tomorrow’s problem” -- man-made climate change. As Kiribati residents flee coastal erosion on outer islands, the capitol island of South Tarawa has become one of the most densely populated areas on earth. Its population density mirrors that of Tokyo or Gaza.
