Global warming will raise sea levels, wreaking havoc on small Pacific island nations. Some low-lying islands will be submerged completely while others will suffer massive damage. These impacts will change forever the Pacific islanders’ natural environment, culture, livelihoods and lifestyles — all of which are intricately linked.

They say: relocation is not a viable option, and our way of life is not negotiable.
