Slideshow From Kiribati -- Pictures of an Atoll Rising Just Above Sea Level

Pictures speak louder than words, as we know the saying goes. The following slideshow from my recent trip to Kiribati highlights a fragile ecosystem on a coral atoll that rises just above sea level. The average elevation in the equatorial nation of Kiribati is just under two meters. The people of Kiribati are beautiful, hospitable, and above all else, know that their land is threatened by climate change and fear for their future.
