It is the only nation in all four hemispheres of the Earth. But the future of the 100,000 residents is uncertain because of <a href="http://climate.gov.ki/">fears that global climate change</a> will raise the ocean levels, making Kiribati, which is only 6 feet above sea level, uninhabitable by the 2050s.</p> Sat, 13 Oct 2012 03:52:22 +0000 Ross Reynolds 1503 at http://kuow.org Anote Tong, President Of Kiribati, Considers The Options For A Drowning Nation
