    The islands most frequently mentioned as being at risk are those closest to sea level. Most seriously at risk are:
    -the Maldives in the Indian ocean – highest point in the entire chain of islands is only 2.4 meters (8 feet), and most of the land is much lower
    -Tuvalu, in the Pacific ocean between Hawaii and Australia – maximum elevation of 4.6 meters (15 feet)
    -the Marshall Islands

    According to the intragovernmental panel on climate change, small island nations and deltas are vulnerable to the rising sea levels due to climate change. Some of the islands that are currently being threatened are the Polynesian islands of Tuvalu and the Pacific islands of Tegua and Vanuatu. Also, Al Gore’s movie An Inconvenient Truth has an interesting map that shows the progression of the rise of sea levels due to global warming.
