Drowning Nation

The Pacific island-nation of Tuvalu is the first country to have evacuated some of its citizens because of the sea-level rise driven by global warming. The highest point on the island sits only 15 feet above sea level. A quarter of the nation’s population has already been evacuated. Will this be the first island nation to disappear as a result of climate change?
