Creating Waves of Awareness
We have enough space to move around, to play our favorite games, to dump our wastes and pollutants. We also have enough money to make weapons and fight each other over silly reasons. We also have money to make huge buildings and shopping malls. On the other side of the globe, there are people who count their days.
There is one country in this world, which is sinking day by day. It is one among the few smallest countries in the world – Tuvalu. It is a Polynesian island nation located in the Pacific Ocean, midway between Hawaii and Australia. It comprises four reef islands and five true atolls spread out from 6° to 10° south. Tuvalu is the fourth smallest country in the world.
Day by day, the water level is rising due to global warming. If we offer the money we waste for silly reasons to this country, it is possible to make a wall around to prevent further erosion of the land. It is said that this country will be under the seawater within a few years. If we can't help them, at least do not trouble them by hastening the rate of global warming.
