Funny, they don't act like there is a global warming emergency:
Check out this BBC report on the burning of the island’s trash titled, ’Apocalyptic’ island of waste in the Maldives.
Maybe if the Maldives, instead of burning the trash, should use it to build the island higher to guard itself against the climate change they are causing?
Given the poverty of the Maldives, they don't want us to preserve their island nation, the just want us to pay to relocate them to a developed country. I'd burn my garbage, too, if I thought it would hasten the day when I could get off those islands.
