Maldives President Dives Deep for Climate Change

The president of Maldives, Mohamed Nasheed, will hold a cabinet meeting on October 17th -- 20 feet underwater, reports Globalwarmingisreal.com. In preparation for the underwater meeting, he has asked members of his cabinet to take scuba lessons and learn underwater signs. There's a method to Nasheed's madness; as the lowest-lying nation on earth, Maldives could disappear if sea levels continue to rise as a result of global warming. Nasheed will present a document for his cabinet to sign which calls for all countries to cut their carbon emissions (no worries, it'll be in a waterproof sheath) that he hopes to present at the COP15 Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen.
