    This is one of the global issues that saddens me the most. Instead of waiting for government actions from the world's "major powers" that are not listening, I wonder if there could be any people-powered solutions: crowd-funded initiatives to mobilize the world's top scientists, engineers, inventors, entrepreneurs... to come up with the best way to adapt to inevitable changes and to assist with necessary transitions?

    Even if purchasing and moving to other islands is what needs to happen, moving a nation isn't going to be an easy task, and isn't helping with the process the least that the rest if the world can do?

    Many business leaders, philanthropists, celebrities, etc. have lent their voices to support causes like global health, poverty alleviation, fighting violence and promoting education, and lots of individuals (and sometimes even corporations) have been happy to support them. What would it take for the world to find the same kind of passion for the cause of supporting those island nations that face the threat of losing their homes?
