The Maldives Gets Tough on Warming

The President of the Maldives, an island nation in the Indian Ocean, has pledged to make his country the first carbon-neutral nation in the world within the next ten years. Facing an existential threat from rising sea levels, President Mohamed Nasheed said yesterday that the Maldives will now get all of its energy from renewable sources.

Perhaps Senator McCain can help get the ball rolling.
