I Melt with You
Right now, Tim Flannery has been making the rounds pushing his book The Weather Makers, about the truth of the Global Warming situation. (Summary: Not so good, Al) Whether you think Global Warming is a reality or not, if the ocean levels do rise, one of the first places to disappear will be the Maldives, a chain of islands in the Indian Ocean that are just a few feet above sea level.
Since we're not sure exactly when we'll be swinging through that part of the world next, or anytime before the polar ice caps melt, we recommend taking a look at Ahmed Zahid's photographs on Flickr instead. Check them out; it's be much harder to photograph the Maldives when it's underwater.
