Countdown to Copenhagen: Maldives sends a strong message

In case you have not seen it, a very strong message has been sent by the President of Maldives to the world as we countdown to the climate change talks in Copenhagen in December: “Please don’t be stupid”. The message was sent during the premiere of the “Age of Stupid”, an environmental film set in the devastated future world of 2055 that asks the question, “why didn’t we stop climate change when we had the chance?”

Here is the video from YouTube with the message. The Maldives’ low lying islands are threatened by sea level rise caused by climate change. Island States like the Seychelles are acutely vulnerable to climate change.
